‘Everyone started screaming, running in different directions’
That was the words of Brett Hurt, a sophomore at Franklin Regional High School. According to Gracie Evans, Brett protected her from the knife wielding Alex Hribal who yesterday went on a stabbing spree at his school, stabbing or slashing 20 people including Brett Hurt who has a bruised lung and a back injury.
‘I didn’t really know what was going on at the time. I was walking down the hall with a friend of mine, Gracie Evans. And then it just all, like, hit. she was screaming, I was just standing there everywhere just went — like I didn’t know what was going on.’ – Brett Hurt
According to Hurt, Evans applied pressure to Hurt’s back after he was stabbed to try to stop the bleeding, he said. Hurt said: “She saved my life.”

Hurt said in an interview with NBC News that he has been thinking about Alex Hribal and the incident: “Maybe if he had more friends or somebody to help him out, to show him a different path, maybe it would have been different.” said Hurt.

“I just hope that one day everyone — I can forgive him and everyone else who got hurt can forgive him. Most of all he needs to forgive himself.”
