ROUTE 91 HARVEST FESTIVAL: Man Marries Woman He Saved From Gunfire

Maybe it's triumph over tragedy. A man just got married to the woman he saved from gunfire at theRoute 91 Harvest Festival.

Chantal Melanson, who came to the festival from Canada, met California manAustin Montforton September 30th, 2017 at a Las Vegas bar. They made plans to attend the last day of the festival together on October 1st -- the day of the shootings. 

Chantal tellsPeople, "I remember laying on the ground just looking into Austin’s eyes, trying to make sense of everything. Next thing I knew, Austin was holding my hand and we were running through the entire grounds trying to make it to safety."

The couple just got married at the San Diego courthouse. They'd planned a formal celebration last week but have postponed that.
