Las Vegas shooting: New CCTV video shows people running for their lives
Las Vegas police have released footage from a camera positioned on top of the Mandalay Bay Resort recording during last October’s mass shooting in the city – the deadliest in modern US history. The eerie video shows floodlights sweep the concert crowd before the shooting starts. As the massacre unfolds, bright lights come up and people can be seen fleeing the area. Others stay behind in an attempt to assist the injured as chaos ensues around them. Gunman Stephen Paddock unleashed a deadly barrage from a 32nd-floor room of the hotel, killing 58 people and injuring more than 800.
The newly-released footage, provided more than eight months after the shooting, represents the fifth batch of records made public by the Las Vegas police department. Hundreds of emergency calls made throughout the massacre have also been released, documenting the terror of Paddock’s 10-minute shooting spree. According to County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, investigators still don’t know a motive for the attack. It now seems unlikely that one will ever be determined, he added.

Video magnifiers are some of the more sophisticated and powerful magnifying tools available to workers with low vision. They may be necessary for some tasks when a hand-held or stand magnifier will not work; however, not all employees with vision loss will need these products. There are many video magnifiers made by several manufactures commercially available. For a full list of available video magnifiers and where to purchase them, visit AFB’s Product Database. Video magnifiers consist of a video camera connected to some type of monitor such as a computer monitor.
Materials can be placed under the camera and an enlarged image of the material is displayed on the monitor. The user adjusts a zoom lens to enlarge the image to the desired size. Other features such as color, dark text on a light background or light text on a dark background, and auto-focusing enhance the user’s efficiency when performing literacy tasks.

A review of the use of CCTV in Guernsey could see an increase in the number of cameras in public places. The island’s government is looking for a company to review how CCTV cameras are used in the island, with the aim of updating their policies and procedures by 2019. At the moment most are used for specific reasons, according to the Home Affairs Committee, including deterring criminal and anti-social behaviour, and maintaining general security. Networked cameras were originally installed by police and customs officials but were later extended to include the airport, harbours and Guernsey Prison. CCTV is used across the main centres in the island including the town centre, the Bridge and court buildings.
Chelsea Martel, head of operations for the Committee for Home Affairs, said the review was expected to take about 12 weeks.
