305 claims approved for Pulse victims' fund
ORLANDO, Fla. – Officials with a fund created from donations for victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting say they will distribute $29.5 million on 305 claims when the process is completed.
Officials with OneOrlando Fund said Friday that $27.4 million has been distributed for 299 claims so far.
Officials say six claims remain unpaid because family members haven't agreed about who should get the money.
Fund officials say 348 claims were submitted but 43 claims were deemed ineligible, primarily because the claimant wasn't inside the nightclub.
Forty-nine people were killed and dozens of others injured in the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
Estates of the deceased patrons each received $350,000.
Surviving patrons got anywhere from $25,000 to $300,000 each, depending on if they were injured and the extent of their injuries.
