Anthony Borges

Anthony Borges, 15, is being hailed as a hero for his actions during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that killed 17. His fellow students say Borges’ actions saved their lives.

The teen was shot in his back and legs as he locked the door and blocked the doorway with his body, leaving the other 20 students unharmed as the gunman continued to fire.

Borges’ best friend, Carlos Rodriguez told ABC News, that it was Borges’ quick-thinking actions that saved his life.

"None of us knew what to do. So, he took the initiative to just save his other classmates," Rodriguez said.

Wow that is amazing, over $430,000 already raised. I hope people can help support Aaron Feis's fundraiser the same way.

Fantastic they've raised so much so quickly. Every story I hear about the shooting just breaks my heart. I'm so glad this kid was able to think clearly and save so many lives. A true hero.

He should be proud his kid is a hero in every sense imaginable. When I read stories like this it makes me think of Mr. Rodgers. He used to say when there is a tragedy to look for the helpers. The people who take action focus on the good in people. Anthony Borges is exactly the type of person Mr Rodgers was talking about. 

TTT for a hero!

STUD!!

 

Great stuff kid. Get well soon!

What a great young man!
