Franklin Regional High School near Pittsburgh, PA was the site of a horrific scene on Wednesday April 9th 2014 with “at least 24” injured, including 5 critically wounded.
But the carnage, which was done in about five minutes, could have been worse.
Fortunately, the attacker in this case also seemed not to understand how to properly use the knife, usually slashing his victims. In addition, at least one life was saved by another of the victims: “A surgeon came out and congratulated one of the victims by saying she had saved the person’s life by applying pressure to the person’s wound.”
The attacker was very small physically, with him described as “a 16-year-old kid who looks like he’s 10.”
