This is 15-year-old Anthony Borges. He is credited with saving up to 20 lives during the Parkland school shooting.
He was shot five times during the Feb. 14 school shooting. He barricaded a classroom door and used his body as a human shield as bullets flew, protecting a class full of students from harm.
“I think I was going to die,” Borges said.
As a result of the shooting, a third of his lung had to be removed. One bullet came dangerously close to his liver, and three others tore through his legs.
“He’s a hero,” family attorney Alex Arreaza said. “He’s the real deal.”
