School officials said Monday that Ella was improving and making progress while recovering at an Indianapolis hospital.
When a middle school boy allegedly opened fire at his IN school, the science teacher immediately ran and tackled him to the ground, one student IN the classroom told ABC News. Whistler is listed in critical but stable condition, according to a statement released by her family. The shooting happened inside Seaman's seventh-grade science class. Jason Seaman put himself in harm's way to protect his students and he doesn't regret his actions, even though he, too, was hit by gunfire. But at a press conference Monday morning, 29-year-old Jason Seaman said he does not want to be called a hero.
An Indiana science teacher has been released from a hospital a day after he was shot while tackling an armed student inside his classroom. "I was trying to stay crouched behind the back table, but also see what's going on and that's when (Mr. Seaman) was running right at him with this arms in front of him, and then he just tackled him against the wall".
Thanks in large part to Seaman's actions, the melee ended quickly, and the student was arrested.
Fortunately, Twitter users are keeping Jason Seaman in mind-as an example of the kind of courage, honor, and action in an era of inaction that we should all collectively strive toward.
School officials say a 13-year-old student who was critically wounded during a shooting at her IN middle school is improving. "You're the reason I teach", he said. Before becoming a high school teacher and coach, Seaman played for the Southern Illinois football team.
After the news conference, Seaman attended a Noblesville High School baseball game, high-fiving students, including many who cried when they saw him for the first time since the shooting.
Students were bused to the Noblesville High School gym, where hundreds of parents and other family members arrived to retrieve them.
When asked to elaborate on his praise of the response, Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter said: "Wait 'til one day we can tell you that story".
