A student who survived the horrific mass shooting on Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, is crediting a heroic janitor for helping save at least 30 kids’ lives.
David Hogg told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham that he heard a single gunshot on Wednesday afternoon when he and others assumed the school was simply holding a fire drill.
But he then saw scores of students running and he, too, fled.
Unfortunately, there was a major problem that Hogg didn’t realize at the time: he was heading toward the gunman.
“We were actually running towards the school shooter,” he said. “But, luckily for the heroic actions of one janitor and [one other person], they saved hundreds of lives today, because they stopped all the students and got them in one single room.”
