A chilling story in the New York Daily News at first reads a bit like a TV action show, describing surveillance video of a group of teens wounded in a shooting making their way to safety, one heroically dragging his friend to cover. But because these are human teenagers they have human responses: “Once inside the building, the teen in the jean jacket can be seen on the video curling up into the fetal position. He then begins to vomit uncontrollably. As this happens, the friend who rescued him from the gunman broke down in sobs.”
