Love is a beautiful thing and sometimes it isabout making grave sacrifice  for each other. That was the story of a Tennessee man who died saving his wife in the Las Vegas shooting, which saw at least 59 people killed by a gunman at a music festival, on Sunday.

Sonny Melton, a registered nurse, died in the shooting, according to The Henry County Medical Centre in Paris in Tennessee, where he worked.

His wife Heather Melton, an orthopaedic surgeon who was with him when shots were fired survived the shooting, the medical centre said.

Heather Melton told WZTV in Nashville that Sonny “saved my life and lost his.” She said her husband was the most kind-hearted, loving man she had ever met.

Sonny’s friend, Jeremy Butler, told the Paris (Tennessee) Post-Intelligencer that Melton was shielding Heather Melton from gunfire when he was fatally shot.

Sonny, 29, was a graduate of the Union University in Tennessee.

“You know how when you met someone and you know that they’re good and kind? That was Sonny,” Christy Davis, an assistant nursing professor was quoted as saying by Time.

At least 59 people never made it home after Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel onto a crowd of more than 22,000 below at a country music festival.
