Siri's Enthusiastic Help During Las Vegas Shootout

As the deadliest shots in recent US history unfolded in Las Vegas on Sunday night, hundreds of spectators like Heather Gooze were forced to watch strangers die right in front of their eyes .

Gooze held a victim in his arms as he exhaled. To reach their loved ones, made use of Siri and Facebook.

Gooze was there to comfort Jordan McIldoon, 23, for hours while he died of gunshot wounds at the Harvest Route 91 music festival in Las Vegas. McIldoon was one of at least 59 dead during the horrific massacre .

More than 520 people were injured. The gunman, Stephen Paddock, 64, committed suicide after using at least 23 guns, including automatic weapons, to shoot the crowd from his 32nd-floor room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino .

Gooze and another stranger received McIldoon's phone hoping to have more information about him. Although the contents of the phone could not be accessed without a password , Facebook messages began to appear on your screen. That prompted Gooze to turn to social networks for help.

Using his own phone, Gooze looked for McIldoon on Facebook and looked at his profile to find another person who shared his last name, along with a girl who assumed that he was his girlfriend . Using Messenger, Gooze sent a photo of McIldoon's driving license, which she retrieved from both her wallet and asked, "Do you know this man?"

While Gooze was reaching McIldoon's Facebook friends, he switched to using his iPhone.

" His phone rang and the guy I was with responded that he was Jordan's mother ," Gooze told CNN. " She confirmed that this was her son and ... confirmed that she was with Amber, his girlfriend "
