As Dee Jay Silver and his wife were among the thousands of attendees protecting themselves at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, their baby boy was merely doors down from the gunman’s hotel room in the Mandalay Bay.

Expressing her gratefulness for their son’s wellbeing as well as thanking the protection of her family over their child, Dee Jay Silver’s wife, Jenna Straub, took to her Instagram to post a heart-wrenching yet emotional story about how close to home the horrific shooting truly was to their family.

“Wake is our whole soul & reason for living. He was in our room at Mandalay Bay last night, 3 doors down from the shooter on the 32nd floor. While John & I were at the festival, ducking behind buses, not knowing what was happening & fearing for our lives, our sweet baby slept through the horrific sounds coming from just down the hall that have now forever changed us. Thank you to the first responders who beat the door in & to my Aunt Mary who was watching him & protecting him all the way to safety. We were separated for the most traumatic several hours of my life while John & I & everyone from Jason’s camp did what they could to reunite our family & help those who weren’t nearly as lucky as us. My mom was also separated from us but was safe & is back with us,” Straub captioned the picture of their boy, Wake.
