One of the most severely wounded teens from the stabbing rampage at a Pennsylvania high school — who was nearly knifed in the heart — underwent another surgery early Thursday, his family said.
Jared Boger, 17, was stabbed in the liver Wednesday when a fellow student, Alex Hribal, at Franklin Regional in Murrysville, Pa., began randomly attacking schoolmates with two kitchen knives.
“Jared’s in a lot of pain right now and is uncomfortable but he is bleeding much less,” his brother, Carter Boger, said in a text message to NBC News.
According to doctors at UPMC Prebyterian Hospital, the knife missed Boger’s heart and aorta by millimeters. He underwent emergency surgery when he was brought in and had a second operation overnight.
