It's been a hectic day for parents, teachers, and students at Franklin Regional High School located just miles outside of Pittsburgh, PA. Two dozen people were wounded, some of them critically, after a teenager at the school went on a stabbing rampage early this morning.
While there have been several accounts of the horrific situation that went down, one does end on a lighter note, if here can be one right now. Several students said they were saved from harm because a student pulled the fire alarm as soon as the stabbings stared to occur.
"One of the students pulled the alarm, my daughter said, after the incident happened to clear the school. She reported to me it was a 10th grade student," parent Tim Graham told local Pittsburgh news outlet KDKA. That student was Nate Scimio.
According to Instagram comments, a friend told Nate to break the alarm when he couldn't himself because he was stabbed in the leg. That's when Nate went and punched the stabber, got stabbed in the arm himself, and then busted the fire alarm and pulled it.
As if being a hero wasn't awesome enough, Nate made everyone chuckle a little when he posted a selfie from the hospital. In it, he's in his hospital gown and points to his stab wound on his arm. He even sports that infamous duck face too.
On a more serious note, the stabbing suspect was taken into custody. Get updates on all the victims here.
