El Paso Strong: The eyes and ears of a tragedy

New Mexico State University journalism student Andrea Vazquez was interning for ABC-7 in her native El Paso, Texas, the day tragedy struck her city.

Vazquez walks us through her experience, from her wild drive in a news van to get a critical live shot, to comforting grieving families and shaken reporters, to processing little-known details about the shooting, to eventually coming face-to-face with the killer in an El Paso courtroom.

Vazquez truly is the eyes and ears of this tragic story of hate, pain, love and hope in the “Sun City.”

Story narrated and produced by Karla Draksler for Kokopelli
