As most of us know, Anne Marie Hochhalter was injured critically during the initial part of the shooting. She was probably the most gravely injured person of all the survivors. She received two gunshot woulds with injuries to her lung, liver, diaphragm, spine and a major vein.
A police officer had a short interview with her when she was in the hospital, this is in 11k document sarting on page 000216.
Se mentioned that around 11.10 she went to CHS publication room and then went to the grassy area outside the library to eat lunch with Kim Blair and Jason Authenreith (Jason would later drag her to safety despite coming under fire).
Then Ann saw both shooters who were standing at the stairs to the entrace of CHS, shoting at the entranceShe thought at first taht its just a prank, but realized that its real when she seen students getting wounded. She got up and tried to run away in the direction of the cafeteria, when E&D opened fire on her. She was very badly wounded by at least two shots.
The spinal wound left her paralyzed from the waist down, but this thankfully sved her from feeling much of the pain from her lung and liver wounds. She was dragged by Jason Authenreith (who himself afaik came under fire) to safety by a nearby CHS wall, but gunfire exchange between Eric and Gardiner made it impossible for her colleague to drag her further away.
Anne Marie spent 45 minutes lying outside of CHS before she was rescued. During this time the lung wound made blood to enter her respiratory system, causing her to slowly drown in her own blood. She heard the shots and explosions, she also heard Dylan "shout orders" to Eric, but she could not make out the exact words.
She only very narrowly escaped death. The dioctors at the hospital were convinced that her injuries are so bad that she will almost certainly die withing hours of the shooting. She survived though.
IMHO that is first and foremost a remarkable suvivor story and I'm very glad she made it out alive. Sadly, she is unable to walk and confined to a heelchair. Her mother commited suicide shortly after the massacre.
As far as the event is concerned, its interesting to note that Ann eports Dylan shouting orders to Eric, not the otehr way around.
Life is like a tram - you need to know when to get off.
