A mother has revealed the chilling texts she received from her son as the horror of the Orlando shooting unfolded.
Mina Justice was woken to frantic messages from her 30-year-old son Eddie, who was trapped in Pulse nightclub when a gunman opened fire.
He told his mother he loved her and was being held hostage in a women's bathroom.
He confirmed that "lots" of people had been killed and spoke of his fears that he was next.
“He’s coming - I’m gonna die,” he wrote.
At 2.49am, he said: “Hurry - he’s in the bathroom with us.”
She asked: “Is the man in the bathroom wit u?”
At 2:50am, he replied: “He’s a terror.”
Then, a final text from her son a minute later: “Yes.”
Mina has since heard the news that Eddie died - hours after he sent frantic texts saying he thought he would be shot next.
