Orlando massacre survivor died in a car crash


20-year-old Jahqui Sevilla had been partying at Orlando’s Pulse bar last year. 49 people were killed and she was among those who survived because she hid behind the couch when Omar Mateen tried to shot her.
“I did a lot of crying before you got here,” her father Benijno Sevilla told WFTV9. “I did a lot of crying last night. She likes to make people laugh. She has a beautiful smile, beautiful cheeks.” The young woman’s dad still cannot use Past Tense when he speaks about his daughter. But he is grateful to God that they had this year, that she survived in Pulse and it helped him understand how fragile the life is and how lucky he was having more time to spend with his child and to remind her that she was loved and treasured. Ms Sevilla lost control of her car, which then jumped the barrier in the middle of the highway and hit an SUV travelling in the opposite lane head-on. Police are still investigating the cause of the crash.
