Olympic swimming champion and Phoenix-area resident Michael Phelps took to social media Monday to say he is safe after attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas this weekend.
Phelps, and his wife Nicole, attended the three-day music festival with friends Friday night, he wrote on Instagram. The couple saw Friday’s headliner, country singer Eric Church, perform.
Hours after a gunman shot and killed more than 50 people and injured more than 500 at the same festival, Phelps and his wife took to social media to express their sympathies.
“Nicole and I were there with friends on Friday… I woke up this am with texts from a friends and family members making sure we were home and safe… My thoughts and prayers out to the affected family members and friends,” Phelps wrote.
