A teen at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School faces a “long road ahead” after he was hit five times shielding his classmates from the attacker’s bullets.
Anthony Borges, a 15-year-old soccer player, put his body between shooter Nikolas Cruz and his fellow students on Wednesday, according to survivors of the massacre that killed 17.
“None of us knew what to do. So, he took the initiative to just save his other classmates,” his friend Carlos Rodriguez told ABC News.
Rodriguez said that Borges was the last student who fled into a classroom to hide, and blocked bullets from hitting others by standing in the doorway as he tried to lock the room shut.
Borges then called his father to tell him he’d been shot.
The Broward County Sheriff’s office said that the boy hailed as a “hero” by classmates who survived uninjured had been shot five times.
“Fortunately, he is recovering — but has a long road ahead with more surgeries needed,” it posted on Facebook Sunday, adding that Sheriff Scott Israel was “honored” to visit him.
Borges was the last wounded victim of the shooting to be in critical condition, but has since been updated to fair.
A GoFundMe page for the Borges family had raised more than $65,000 as of Sunday night.
