Amber Gonzales, mother of an 8-year-old girl who survived the shooting in Uvalde, Texas, told the Los Angeles Times, "I put her to bed and she told me she felt like someone was looking at her."
Members of their families recounted the traumatic experiences of children who survived the attack in the pages of an American newspaper.
A fourth-grade student shared his memories on KENS TV in San Antonio during one of their programs. According to the boy, the attacker stormed into the classroom and yelled, "Time to die!"
"I told my friend to hide under something when I heard a shot through the door so he wouldn't find us," the boy said. Under the tablecloth, the fourth grader and four other students hid. This is how they managed to escape the shooting.
Many of his colleagues, as well as two teachers, were unsuccessful. "They were very good. According to the Los Angeles Times, "they stood in front of our friends to protect them."
Miah Cerillo, 11, survived by smearing her friend's blood and pretending to be dead, according to her aunt Blanca Rivera. The girl was shot in the back during the shooting. She was admitted to the hospital.
