South Jordan firefighters remove the wounded according to injuries during a mock disaster event. The fake carnage at the Megaplex movie theater at The District shopping center in South Jordan appeared real as more than 60 "victims" with various life-like, bloody wounds moaned and groaned as first responders from three counties set up triage to tend to the wounded during a mock shooting disaster, Wednesday, October 23, 2013.

South Jordan • More than 60 volunteers playing the role of patients participated Wednesday in the second phase of the largest mass-casualty drill in state history.
Megaplex Theatres in South Jordan was the scene. The setting and scenario were meant to mimic the 2012 shooting at an Aurora, Colo., theater.
An Oct. 15 drill at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School in Salt Lake City mimicked the shooting last year at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn.
