The quick thinking of a six-year-old Sandy Hook student ended up saving her life. Her pastor spoke to ABC News’ Lara Spencer to recount the story. The young child played dead on the floor of her first-grade classroom. Covered in the blood of her classmates, the young girl waited until she felt danger had passed. The name of the girl is not being revealed to news sources, but her story is making headlines.

State police officers confirmed at a news conference Monday morning that two unnamed adults had also survived the attacks on Sandy Hook Elementary. The two are recovering from gunshot wounds at a nearby hospital
