Gay Utah Man Who Lost Partner In Vegas Mass Shooting Shares His Story With Anderson Cooper

Utah boyfriends Cameron Robinson and Bobby Eardley were enjoying a country music festival in Las Vegas Sunday night when a gunman opened fire into the crowd.

Robinson was shot in the neck and died at the scene, according to his sister. Eardley was hit in the back with shrapnel but was lucky enough to escape with his life.

Eardley spoke with Anderson Cooper on Wednesday in a touching segment that celebrated their his partner’s life and the heroism of those who helped the couple.

“I just wanted to make sure that he knew that he wasn’t alone in those moments and I held him and talked to him the whole time,” Eardley recalled.

“I just can not say enough amazing things about that man.”

A friend of the couple has set up a GoFundMe to pay for Robinson’s funeral expenses. The fundraiser has brought in almost $25,000 as of publication.
