They were just planning on enjoying a night out before the new school year, but then the unthinkable happened at the movies.
The shooting at the Grand 16 Theater in Lafayette, Louisiana left three people, including the gunman, dead and nine others wounded.
However, when the lone gunman began shooting, two amazing women summoned up the courage and presence of mind to act.
According to The Advocate, Ali Viator Martin and Jena Legnon Meaux, teachers at Jeanerette Senior High, had gone to the movies together.
As ABC News reports, when the shots rang out one of the teachers heroically jumped in front of a colleague to shield her and was able to pull the fire alarm to alert authorities despite being wounded, according to Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
“Her friend literally jumped over her, and in her account actually saved her life,” Jindal said at a press conference, after he visited with victims at a hospital. “If she hadn’t done that … that bullet, she believed it would have hit her in the head.”
