Three other teen boys then approach the student and appear to try to help him but he remains unresponsive.

Cruz, now 24, was sentenced to life in prison in October for the Valentine’s Day massacre at the high school.
Jurors returned the verdict of recommending life in prison after just a day of deliberations and a three-months long trial that included graphic videos and photos, heart-wrenching testimony from victims’ family members and a tour of the still blood-spattered school building.
The massacre is the deadliest mass shooting that has ever gone to trial in the U.S. Nine other people in the U.S. who fatally shot at least 17 people died during or immediately after their attacks by suicide or police gunfire.
The shooting stunned the nation and reignited debate on gun control since Cruz had legally purchased the gun he used despite his history of mental issues.
On March 24, 2018, nationwide marches inspired by school shooting survivors and parents of victims brought together 1.5 million people — the largest public turnout ever in defense of stricter gun control laws in America.
But the Parkland shooting prompted no significant reform and gun sales have continued to rise.
There have been more mass shootings, including one in May that left 19 young children and two adults dead at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.
