Aaron Feis Sacrifices His Life To Save Students During The Florida Shooting
The shooting that happened on Wednesday, February 14, at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, is considered one of 10 deadliest mass shootings in the history of the USA. The gunman, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, opened fire on the premises as students were running from him.
It’s said that he was expelled from the school for some disciplinary reasons, and now, he faces the court. The gunman is said to pull the fire alarm to get as many people as possible out of their classrooms to increase the number of deaths and injuries.
Aaron Feis was a football coach at the school. He was brave enough to shield a few girls with his body and save their lives instead of his own. One of his students, Colton Haab, says that the coach was always a person who respected others. He was selfless and didn’t expect anything in return for the good he did.
(He) made sure everyone else's needs were met before his own. He was a hard worker. He worked after school, on the weekends, mowing lawns, just helping as many people as possible.
Everyone say a prayer or something for coach feis, he is in surgery and fighting for his life right now #douglasshooting

All those people who knew the coach admit it was an extremely brave act he did. All over the US, people pay tribute to him and other heroes who lost their lives in the horrible tragedy.
The US President Donald Trump said:
My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting. No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school.
