LAS VEGAS, NV -

KSNV-TV news reporter and former Fox 40 anchor/reporter Faith Jessie has been providing live updates outside University Medical Center, the state's only level 1 trauma center, since early Monday morning.

Jessie says she began getting calls at 2 a.m. 

"First, from friends and family saying 'Are you okay, are you okay?"

A scroll on her Twitter feed and Jessie, a morning reporter, realized the day would be like none other and how fortunate she was in escaping the tragedy.

"I was supposed to be at that concert. I had tickets to go. I did not go because I decided I had to wake up too early for work and I didn't want to be tired."

Jessie instead has been delivering updates on tv, Twitter and on Facebook on the status of victims, the need for blood and how people can help.
