'I'm Not Worried about Myself, Just the Kids': Hero Stays Behind during El Paso Shooting to Carry Children to Safety

Andrea Morris : Aug 5, 2019  CBN News

"It was just a whole bunch of kids up in there ... I tried to pick up as many as I could. I was just so worried about those kids. I wasn't worried about myself, I was just trying to pick up the kids. I just hope the kids are alright..." -Glen Oakley

Glen Oakley was at Foot Locker when a child ran in shouting that a shooter was in Walmart.

After hearing gunfire, Foot Locker closed its front gate, but Oakley and other shoppers lifted the gate to escape.

While making his way to safety, he saw a group of frightened children and stopped to help them.

"I tried to make my way to the parking lot and I see a whole bunch of kids just running around without their parents so I'm trying to pick them up as many as I can and just run out. They were so anxious and jumping out of my hands so I just made my way out," he explained.

Even though he was shaken from the incident, Oakley continued to carry the terrified children to safety.

"It was just a whole bunch of kids up in there and I hope that nothing happened to the kids. I tried to pick up as many as I could. I was just so worried about those kids. I wasn't worried about myself, I was just trying to pick up the kids. I just hope the kids are alright, that's all I'm thinking about right now is the kids. I'm not even worried about myself, just the kids.

So he picked up as many as he could and carried them to safety.

When most people were running away, this hero stayed to see that innocent children were out of harm's way.

The gunman opened fire in the crowded shopping center, killing 20 and injuring more than two dozen people. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
