School Stabbing Victim's Thought: Will I Die?


MONROEVILLE, Pa. (AP) -- One of the victims of a knife attack at a high school near Pittsburgh says he was terrified he might die when he realized he had been stabbed in the back.

Sixteen-year-old Brett Hurt appeared at a hospital news conference Thursday, a day after authorities say fellow student Alex Hribal either stabbed or slashed 21 students and a security guard at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville.

"What was going through my mind?" Hurt said. "Will I survive or will I die."

Hurt says he doesn't think he could return to school anytime soon. He says, "I might freeze."

Hurt says the whole attack was a blur.

He says he met the suspect a couple of times but didn't really know him.

Hribal is being held on charges including four counts of attempted homicide.
