'I (phoned) my husband and told him I loved him': Ottawa woman describes Lauderdale scene

1.4356385 08 January 2017 22:18:08 Ottawa Citizen - News

In the dining room of her Fort Lauderdale hotel Saturday morning, Terrilynn (T.L.) Rader caught the eye of another guest, a woman she knew only by her given name — Adelaide — and the two began to weep. Less than 24 hours earlier, on Friday afternoon, the pair had crouched together, along with other fellow travellers, behind an SUV outside Terminal 1 of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, surrounded by chaos and uncertainty and fearing for their lives as Adelaide led the group in prayer. “It’s weird how things happen,” T.L. said in a phone interview Saturday. “She was a little angel. And then there she was, sitting having breakfast, and we just looked at each other and started to cry.“ T.L. and her husband, Chris, are ballroom dance instructors from Ottawa who periodically lead dance cruises in the Caribbean, including one setting sail from Miami this weekend. The couple, along with their three-year-old daughter, Sienna, were aboard a WestJet flight that had touched down in Fort Lauderdale at around 12:30 p.m. Friday, around the same time that a gunman opened fire in the adjacent terminal, killing five. Along with close to a dozen other cruise-bound Ottawa ballroom enthusiasts, they had retrieved their luggage and were curbside outside the terminal, awaiting the limousine service that would take them to their hotel. “We’re standing there and literally emergency vehicle after emergency vehicle just kept passing and passing,” recalls T.L. “There were a hundred of them — blaring with sirens — and they were passing and stopping just feet from us, in front of Terminal 2. There were so many that it was staggering, and I said, ‘There’s something going on here. This is not normal.’ There were no flames or smoke, but it was clear there was a bigger situation than was normal.” T.L. returned inside to see if she could find her sister, Cathie Ryan, who was flying in from Fredericton to join the cruise as Sienna’s sitter. “Her flight was delayed, but the irony of that is that if her flight had been on time, she would have been in Terminal 2 when the shooting happened. “But when I got inside, I saw on all of the screens, ‘Breaking News … Fort Lauderdale shooting.’” After no small amount of confusion, their group eventually got their ride out, but T.L. and a friend from Fort Lauderdale, cruise organizer Eva Stelzer, headed back into the terminal to wait for Ryan. When Ryan’s plane arrived, the pair exchanged texts on the situation, and everything, although delayed, seemed fine. (Ryan’s plane ultimately remained on the tarmac, its sweltering passengers unable to disembark for nearly eight hours.) “Then all of a sudden, everybody started running and saying, ‘Take cover, get down, hide, hide, hide, hide, hide.’ That’s when there were reports of a second set of shots, closer to us.” Pandemonium followed. The passengers still in Terminal 1 took cover wherever they could – behind partitions and luggage carousels – as police scrambled to both check on their well-being and make sure that none were possible suspects. “Then they made us all stand up, put our hands up and walk outside. There were about 200 of us. And then, again, ‘Run! Run! Take cover! Everybody hide.” Passengers at Terminal 1 of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport were told to raise their arms before evacuating Friday. That was when T.L. met the prayerful Adelaide, between a concrete divider and a black SUV. After about half an hour, they were told to return inside the terminal. “For the rest of the day it was pretty tense. There was no talking. We later found out they were looking for a second shooter. There was a very ominous feeling throughout the terminal for the entire day. It always felt that they were still looking for somebody. Throughout the day they would come and frisk us, and it wasn’t until about seven o’clock that the tension alleviated and they let people walk around. “But I can’t stress enough the incredible professionalism and actions of the responders. There was FBI, there was army, there were police, there were sheriffs, and although it was frightening, they were so organized and so protective. We’re hiding, crunched under a vehicle, and they’re standing there in full view, protecting us.” Chris, left, and T.L. Rader with their daughter Sienna. At about 8 p.m., passengers with cars were permitted to leave, while others were put on buses to Port Everglades, near the airport, where further transportation was arranged. T.L. and Stelzer stayed until 9 p.m., when Ryan was finally allowed off her plane. “It was a very harrowing experience and I was very shaken,” T.L. admits. “I’m not going to lie: I made the phone call to my husband and told him I loved him. “But today I’m just tuned in to taking care of all our guests and back to work, and I want to get on and have a good day. “This is the unfortunate world we’re living in right now, but life goes on. I’m one of those joie-de-vivre people, and you know what? This is going to make me have a better time this week.” Ottawa dance instructor T.L. Rader was trapped in Terminal 1 of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Friday afternoon, after a gunman opened fire, killing five. For about 30 minutes, she and other travellers hid behind the SUV on the left.
