Aurora victims to marry on anniversary of shooting
AURORA, CO (CNN/KUSA) -- Two people who survived the movie theater shootings in Aurora, Colorado, hope to turn the terrifying memory into a positive one, this weekend. The couple will marry one year to the day after the shooting rampage.
Kristin says, "The day that we could have died is the day we get to spend the rest of our lives together."
To get to here, Kristin Davis and Eugene Hahn first had to live through a terrible tragedy.
Their date to the midnight premier of "Dark Knight Rises" turned into a nightmare. Hahn says, "...and she was down right next to me, so I made sure that James Holmes couldn't get to her."
Bullets hit Hahn in the hip and the knee as he shielded Davis with his body. It took him months to recover, much of that time Davis was at his side. She had suffered only minor cuts and scrapes.
Saturday one full year after a gunman killed 12 people and wounded 58, including them; this couple will tie the knot. Eugene says, "It was a night of, you know, terror and horror and all of that stuff, but we wanted to change the date and kind of make it our own."
Hahn tells CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" that he proposed months after the ordeal and Davis said yes. Kristin says, "It brought me back to that night and how he did kind of save me. Of course, I want to keep him around."
Their love for each other strengthened through tragedy, two people who have known each other since elementary school look to turn this painful anniversary into one built on happy memories.
