The photo of the iPhone immediately went viral on social media platforms. It is clear from the picture that the device is completely shattered at the bottom but otherwise it seems quite intact.

Another Las Vegas shooting survivor, Heather Gooze, used iPhone Siri feature to bypass the phone's security measures and get in touch with a family of 25-year old Jordan Mclldoon, who died in her arms after she helped move him from the sidewalk.
"I didn't want him to be a John Doe," Gooze explained, as reported by Deseret News.
