Teacher becomes a life saver during a crisis

(NBC)–A teacher in Oregon is a hero after jumping into action by saving several students.  This all happened when a student brought a gun to school. Proper training likely came in handy when  the coach disarmed the student.

The student entered the classroom with a gun. And, immediately the coach rushed over to retrieve it. After taking the gun the coach passes the firearm to another staff member. Then the coach hugs the student.

Police say, the student was suicidal and did not intend to hurt anyone else at the school.  He was sentenced to three years probation and treatment for mental health and substance abuse.
