Could you marry someone who abandoned you during a moment of crisis? Patricia Legarreta has agreed to do so. Legarreta was at the Century 16 Cinema in Aurora, CO, with her boyfriend, Jamie Rohrs, her 4-year-old daughter, and their infant son when James Holmes opened fire. According to the Huffington Post, Rohrs sat his four-month-old son on the ground and fled, leaving both his child and Legarreta behind.
Rohrs said he lost his son in the darkness, and couldn't find Legarreta after fleeing the theater. He says he drove across the mall in his truck and attempted to call Legarreta, but she did not answer her phone. Meanwhile, 19-year-old Jarrell Brooks had made it to safety, but noticed Legarreta struggling with her children and returned to help. He suffered a wound to his leg in the process, but is recovering at a local hospital.
