Jarell Brooks saves woman/kids after Jamie Rohr abandoned them in Aurora CO, shooting
The reason Patricia Legarreta was alone in the theaters with her two young children is because her boyfriend/fiance, Jamie Rohrs, ran out of the theater leaving them to fend for themselves. The boyfriend actually got outside safely to his truck. Patricia later called him so he could come back to the theater and pick her and his kids up.
If not for Jarrell Brooks who knows what might have happened to her and the kids.
The boyfriend later proposed to Patricia and she said yes.
'Going through 10 minutes of thinking he was dead and I would never see him again, you never want that feeling again,' she added.
But speaking to ABC's 'Good Morning America' this morning, the young mother admitted the happy occasion was tinged with heartbreak.
'I'm ecstatic, extremely excited, but at the same time, you have this tragedy, this sadness hanging over,' she told the TV station.
The couple had taken their infant son Ethan and four-year-old daughter to the midnight screening in Aurora, Colorado, thinking the children would sleep through the movie as they sat on the second floor balcony.
But when suspected gunman James Holmes, 24, opened fire on the packed movie theater, Mr Rohrs and Ms Legarreta were separated.
