A transcript of a 911 call from one of the students inside the Uvalde classroom that was targeted by Ramos Salvador has revealed that one of the two teachers killed in the massacre may have survived if cops had not waited an hour to take out the gunman.
‘There is a lot of bodies,’ 10-year-old Khloie Torres told a 911 dispatcher 12:10 pm on May 24 after Ramos opened fire at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas, the New York Times reported.
Khloie added that one of her teachers had been shot but was still alive and begged for help.
‘I don’t want to die, my teacher is dead, my teacher is dead, please send help, send help for my teacher, she is shot but still alive,’ the desperate girl pleaded.
The fourth grader did not specify if it was Irma Garcia or Eva Mireles- the two teachers shot and killed- who was injured.
The 10-year-old stayed on the line for about 17 minutes- and 11 minutes into the call, the sound of gunfire could be heard in the background.
Khloie said her fourth grade classroom in Room 112 were watching a movie when her teacher, Irma Garcia, told the class to go into lockdown- turning off the movie and rushing to lock the classroom door, the Times reported.
But Garcia struggled to find the keys to the door and by the time she found the right key 18-year-old gunman Salvador Ramos was outside the door.
‘He grabbed the door, and he opened it,’ Khloie said.
As Khloie and her classmates hid under tables she said she heard Ramos say ‘you’ll die’ and fire his gun while Garcia tried to protect her students.
The 10-year-old said she also heard Ramos say ‘good night’ before shooting at her classmates.
When one student who was struck shouted out ‘I’m shot’ he caught Ramos’s attention, who returned to the wounded child and shot them dead, Khloie told the Times.
As Ramos moved between the adjoining classroom where teacher Eva Mireles was, Khloie said she took the chance to call out quietly: ‘Is anybody OK? Is anybody hurt?’ to which one classmate responded: ‘Yeah’
