CBS 58-- As the shooting at the Fort Lauderdale airport unfolded, Dina Williams waited, terrified for her 21-year-old daughter who was inside.

Williams says her daughter and a friend were traveling home to Milwaukee after a cruise. Her daughter called her during the chaos.

"I'm like what's going on?," Williams recalled. "And she was like, 'they're shooting, they're shooting.' And I'm like get down low and I could hear boom boom boom and I'm like can you hear me? and she just kept repeating mamma I love you, mamma I love you, to the point where she couldn't hear what i was saying to her."
