An astonishing revelation about the Florida high school shooting was revealed in an interview with a heroic Parkland teacher who risked her own life to save others. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teacher Stacy Lippel appeared on Good Morning America and recounted her harrowing experience.

Lippel describes herding her students into her classroom to try and protect them from the shooter. Moments after the first shots rang out, Lippel got a clear view of the shooter and what she describes is chilling. "Then I saw the shooter about twenty feet from me standing at the end of the hallway, actively shooting down the hallway," she said.

"Just a barrage of bullets."

"And I'm staring at him thinking, 'Why is the police here? This is strange'. He's in full metal garb. Helmet, facemask, bulletproof armor, shooting this rifle that I've never seen before." Lippel goes on to describe how she closed her classroom door to protect her students seeking shelter inside.

"I grabbed the handle with both hands and that's when I got nicked or grazed, or whatever you call it." Lippel points to her left upper arm where a grazing wound is visible. The interviewer asks, "A bullet hit your arm?" She replies, "Yes. As I'm closing my door I'm shouting at my next door neighbor, Mr. Scott Beigel, to close his door."

"And he's the kind of man that would keep that door open a little longer, you know, he's all about the kids," Lippel said. Fellow teacher 35-year-old Scott Beigel would not survive the shooting that day.

Since the tragic event unfolded on Valentine's day, the shooting has been shrouded with controversy, much of which stems from criticism of how the Sheriff's handled the shooting and prior contacts with the shooter, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz.

Many called out for <a href="">Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel to resign</a> after it was revealed that his deputies hid outside behind cars instead of engaging Cruz during the attack, including the very students they failed to protect.

To add to the controversy, video showing student interviews have been censored on social media. One student even <a href="">walked out of an interview after refusing to recite scripted questions</a> and learned he could not speak freely during the broadcast.

Another video shows a Parkland high school student who has been prominent in the media since the shooting reportedly hiding from the shooter in a school closet many hours before the Sheriff's timeline depicts the shooting occurred.

Some social media users pointed out that an active shooter drill took place earlier that day and the school was put on lockdown just hours prior to the shooting but this could not be confirmed.

Mrs. Lippel's description of the shooter was not followed up on by the interviewer and creates more questions than answers but there is one indisputable fact, her quick thinking and instinct saved the lives of many children that day.

This teacher's description actually sort of corroborates another student's description who said there were at least three shooters.

Wasn't there a "crisis" drill also scheduled the day of sandy hook? Very odd to have something go down the same after so called training?

And wasn't Sandy Hook bulldozed weeks after the 'shooting' as well?
