Transcript for Sandy Hook Elementary Shooting: Teacher's Training Saved Kid's Lives
again, we want to give you the latest now on those who were injured. The victims who are recovering tonight in the hospital. For that we go amy robach who has been following their stories. Amy? Good evening to you. This has been the most traumatic event anyone at this hospital has ever experienced, that's what I heard from a physician here who is president and ceo of danbury hospital. He talked about the moment he received the phone call expecting two dozen victims. He amassed 80 doctors and nurses, the finest surgeons available to be prepared for anything and everything, and they only received three injured victims at this point. They said about ten minutes later, that's when they realized that no more were coming. It's important to note, he said, this obviously affected everyone who was in this hospital at the time. All the police officers, the firefighters, the children inside the school, the parents, there's no one who wasn't affected. This means this is going to be a community that will require medical, emotional care for years to come. They have so the up services that people can access 24 hours a day, seven days a week, they actually have mobile labs spread out throughout the community to help anyone who feels a moment of crisis because this is something they will deal with, they're bringing it home to their family. He told me it was the single most traumatic event he's ever experienced or considered in his professional or personal life. Those are fairly weighty words from an emergency room doctor who you would think had pretty much seen it all. He and I don't think anyone in the community had ever prepared for anything like what they saw today.
