Markie Coffer was due to give birth at any moment when she attended a festival in Las Vegas. Tragedy struck at the show, however, when a horrific shooting occurred. And Coffer herself was lucky to escape with her life. But two days on from the massacre, she received the deliverance she may have been longing for.
Back in September 2017, Coffer and boyfriend Travis Matheson lived in Las Vegas with their children Ryder, Lylah and Kysen. And they were expecting their fourth child when they decided to attend the local Route 91 Harvest festival; in fact, Coffer was approximately one week past her due date at the time.
Knowing that she could go into labor at any moment didn’t stop Coffer from wanting to attend the festival, though. Indeed, the pregnant mom even thought that the excitement of the three-day event could potentially bring about the birth. In 2017 she would tell Las Vegas-based Fox affiliate KVVU-TV, “We decided, ‘Oh, we’ll go [to Route 91 Harvest]. Maybe it will help [my baby] come out.’ And we were just there having fun.”
