The professor collapsed immediately and then Chris Harper-Mercer tuned to other students and stating shooting one by one.
Lacey laid down and wishing that this all might turn out to be a nightmare. The shooter came and asked everyone one by one, if they were Christian. and if one said yes, they would shoot him/her. Suddenly she heard a loud blast near her ear and she knew that her former classmate, Treven Anspach, has been shot.
Her father recite the rest of the story, He said, "She felt the weight of his body on her. She opened her eyes and he was lying in the same direction as her, a little bit ahead of her. Then she saw his blood coming under her arms. She heard a gurgling sound coming from his throat and felt him move closer to her to cover her." Her father continues: "And then at that time, she said, 'I heard the shooter over me say, 'Get up.'" She froze. The shooter asked another person, "Is she dead?" referring to Lacey. The person said, "I don't know." The shooter stepped over Lacey and shot someone else.
"The blood of that boy, Treven, saved my daughter's life," Scroggins said. "I know it as well as I know that I'm sitting here. He will always be the Scroggins' hero, from this point forward." It is exactly because Treven, with his last dying breath, laid himself on top of Lacey that she survived. Treven made the ultimate sacrifice for Lacey so that she could live.
After learning what Treven had done for his caught , he called his mother. She said, "I want you to love your daughter, hold your daughter, kiss your daughter every day of your life. We have a connection, and every time you hug your daughter, I'll be hugging my son."
