Tale of 2 brothers: 1 victim, 1 rescuer in Vegas shooting

Nicholas (Nick) Robone, 28, left, and his brother Anthony (Tony), 25, are seen in this 2017 photo during a trip to Seattle. The brothers grew up close in Las Vegas, where they were the only siblings in the same family and shared a love of hockey and the same alma mater, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Tony grew up to be a firefighter and paramedic and has been credited with saving the life of his brother, who he was with when he was shot in the upper chest on Oct. 1 at a country music festival during the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Nick is expected to make a full recovery and be ready to return to work in six to eight weeks. (Emmanuel Banez via AP)
