A Yonkers woman who returned from Las Vegas Monday afternoon says there are no words to explain how terrified she is by the shooting attack that killed 59 people and injured hundreds.
Vida Hernandez says she fears she will never be the same.

Hernandez went to Las Vegas to celebrate her birthday and was eating dinner at the New York-New York Hotel a few blocks away from where a lone gunman opened fire on a crowd of people.
Hernandez and her friend were put on lockdown by the SWAT team and locked in a bar until they were given the all-clear after the shooting.

With that shooting still fresh in her mind, Hernandez says she is afraid to go to sleep.  She says she is fearful she will have nightmares of people running from that shooting.
She also says she will never return to Las Vegas.
"I don't care if my best friend's getting married in Vegas, I'd never go back and relive that moment,” she says.
