The mystery man at the center of one of the most haunting images from the Las Vegas massacre has been revealed as a young US Army soldier.
Matthew Cobos was photographed on Sunday night lying on top of a young woman in an attempt to shield her from the barrage of bullets tearing through the air around them.
Cobos also covered the blonde woman’s eyes in a bid to stop her from seeing the carnage around them. Moments later, Cobos and the woman got up and they ran to safety behind a nearby car.
Once Cobos got the woman to safety, he then ran back into the danger zone to help others who had been injured.
