HOUSTON—Twelve people were rushed to area hospitals after an attack on the campus of Lone Star College Cy-Fair. A witness said the suspect was running down the hallway and randomly stabbing students. KHOU 11 News reporter Jeremy Desel talks to a mother who was anxiously waiting for her daughter to be released from the campus.
You’re a mom, and you’re kind of anxious, it sounds.
Yes, I am very anxious to find out what’s going on and to find out if my daughter’s class has actually been released.
But you’re able to atleast be in contact with her?
Yes, she’s actually been texting me back and forth, but she’s not answering the phone or she’s not calling. She’s just texting.
What goes through your mind when you’re standing here kind of helpless?
Basically, I am just frantic. I’m scared out of my mind. I know that she’s OK, but she’s just scared, so it just worries me that she’s scared.
How can you comfort her through a text message?
Just by letting her know that I am here and everything is going to be OK. It’s actually frustrating that something like this is happening again, but I’m quite sure that they have it all under control, but I thought by now since the other incident that something like this wouldn’t even happen.
