TGIF: Shooting & Flood / by Sonya Paclob

I'm happy to be back home from my shift that started at 5:30 a.m. My shift ended at 8:00 p.m. Now, awaiting for my pizza to arrive as a prize. TGIF! 

Why am I getting pizza? Well, today very different day. One day is catching up with community content and the next your at a active school shooting drill ... or being soaked in the rain trying to get to a water rescue (sadly I failed). 

It was a tiring experience, but it was worth it. This is not your regular 9-5 job. 

I first covered a active shooting drill at York Central High School. I was suppose to be a victim with bullet wounds on my body. I was able to talk myself out at the last minute and became an insider. From the start of 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., the school was on lock down. Police officers were able to train a what if situation at a school. 

It was fun at first, until I heard people screaming, yelling, shots fired.. it was all for play, but I can imagine myself in it. I also followed the shooter as he went around the school killing people.  

Read more about the coverage online. 

 

I also made a video of those who participated in the shooting. 

My next assignment was going to a water rescue during heavy rain fall in York. I was unsuccessful in getting to water rescue. The roads were blocked off with water.    

 

Here is another video of me in the rain talking about what is going on the road closed.
