Student In Critical Condition After Diving In Front Of Shooter In Florida, He Saved 20 Of His Classmates

A 15-year-old boy who was injured in the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., used his body as a human shield to protect classmates. His heroism saved the lives of his classmates.

From the family’s Gofundme page:

“Anthony is a victim of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. During this unspeakable tragedy, Anthony was able to save about 20 other students as he attempted to close and lock the door to a classroom. He was shot multiple times (both legs were shot, left upper thigh bone shattered and one bullet went through his back). He has a long road of recovery ahead of him but he is alive and stable.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Anthony and his family. Any help is very much appreciated.”

Borges is a soccer player at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The 15-year-old placed his body between shooter and fellow students, said Carlos Rodriguez, who survived because of Anthony.

But now Anthony needs your prayers.
