ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - New video shows Orange County sheriff's deputies helping patrons escape the Pulse nightclub during the mass shooting there last month.

The video released Thursday comes from the body camera of Sheriff's Deputy Mark Rutkowski.
Gun in one hand, Rutkowski runs into an entrance to the gay nightclub and helps escort out a patron who had been trapped.

Another deputy is heard shouting, "Let's go! Let's go!"

Rutkowski grabs the hand of one man and starts walking him away from the club.

Another deputy asks, "Got anymore?" and Rutkowski says, "There's a line of them coming out."

Gunman Omar Mateen opened fire at Pulse last month. Forty-nine people were killed and 53 injured. Mateen was killed in a shootout with police.
