    We heard a couple of noises outside and people started running into the club. We didn't know what was going on. Then maybe five, six guys came in with machine guns and shotguns and just started shooting people. It was mayhem. When anyone started running, they would shoot them down. So we got down on the floor, nick was in front of me when we were lying on the ground and somebody moved and they just turned round and started shooting us. His back was to me and I couldn't see what happened and I tried to keep him talking and then I tried to give him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and [the gunmen] were just sort of in the shadows and they would shoot if anyone said anything. Then he couldn't breathe anymore and I held him in my arms and told him I loved him.
