Here’s how one student kept the world updated during school shooting in Florida

“The Captain Aidan”, a student at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida said he used his iPhone to keep the world updated via Twitter as bullets hit the school where a gunman killed 17 people.

When the shooting began, Aidan took to Twitter to communicate with the world from inside the school during the shooting.

“I am in a school shooting right now…” he tweeted.

After Aidan’s first tweet about the shooting, he continued to update the world with photos and messages from inside the school, as he and others hid to stay alive.

“My school is being shot up and I am locked inside. I’m f*****g scared right now,” he added shortly after.

The world stayed in contact with Aidan, as they responded to his tweets.

Aidan, a freshman at the school, said he was in a classroom, where he said he ran for safety after hearing “three to four pops” during a maths test.

Communication went both ways as people could respond to Aidan’s tweets to let him know what information they were getting outside the school.

Aidan, a freshman at the school, told the Miami Herald he was in a classroom, where he said he ran for safety after hearing “three to four pops” during a maths test.

At first, Aidan thought it was kids being kids and getting up to something but then the fire alarm went off and the students were all herded to the same side of the classroom so no one could seem them from outside the door.

Aidan continued to update the world, with his recent tweet.
