Justin Uhart and Jan Lambourne were reunited Wednesday after the bartender rushed to help save the life of the Route 91 Harvest Festival concertgoer who was injured in the Las Vegas shooting that killed 58 people and injured some 500 others, CBS News reported.

Uhart is credited for covering Lambourne's stomach wound with his hand after the horrific shooting, staying behind at the concert venue after others ran away, and calling for others to assist, the network said.

"It's just an instinct," Uhart told CBS News. "I don't know. I put my hand on the wound… and then I start screaming, 'Medic! Medic!' She was terrified. I was just asking her the silliest questions of her cats, where she was from, tell me about Canada."

Lambourne, who was able to text her husband to say she was shot, said she remembered Uhart holding her hand a volunteering to stay with her during her ride to the hospital, CBS News wrote.

"He had stayed right from when he found me, right till I went into the operating room," Lambourne told the network, at Valley Hospital Medical Center in Las Vegas. "… It was a rough night for both of us, but if it wasn't for him, I would not be here."

More information continues to be revealed about what has been called the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history when Stephen Paddock allegedly rained fire on 22,000 people attending the music festival headlined that night by country music star Jason Aldean. He eventually turned a gun on himself as law enforcement officers closed in.

Lambourne, from Teulon, Manitoba, a small town about 40 north of Winnipeg, was in the crowd watching the concert when the rapid-fire shots rang out, CBC News wrote.

"All of a sudden I hear this 'pop, pop, pop,' and I looked at my friend and I said, 'I don't know if that's fireworks,'" Lambourne told CBC News. "Next thing I knew, I took a shot. I felt it. Then my hip gave out, I guess because of the pelvic fracture, and I fell to the ground. I looked down and I could see I was bleeding," she continued.

Lambourne said she had separated from her friend Jody Ansell, also from Manitoba, who took a round in her arm, CBC News reported. Ansell was taken to a hospital and learned that a bullet passed through her arms but did not result in any broken bones.
