Student: Uvalde teachers sacrificed themselves by standing in front of students

Eva Mireles, aged 44, and Irma Garcia, 46, “went in front of my classmates to help. To save them,” the boy said, recalling harrowing details of what he witnessed inside the classroom where, authorities said, the shooter had barricaded himself in.

At least 19 children were killed at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde on Tuesday.

The gunman entered, “crouched a little bit and he said, he said, ‘It’s time to die,'” the student told KENS5.

When the boy heard shooting, he had told a friend to find a hiding place. “I was hiding hard. And I was telling my friend to not talk because he is going to hear us,” he said.
