4th grader smeared friend’s blood on herself in order to survive Robb Elementary School massacre

As the country grapples with yet another school tragedy, stories of bravery and survival are emerging.

Irma Garcia and Eva Mireles reportedly sheltered their 4th-grade kids when the gunman opened fire in their classroom. Amerie Jo Garza, 10, contacted 911 shortly after he murmured, “You will die.” She was assassinated before she could reach a dispatcher.

Another family of a fourth-grader has come forward to share their daughter’s horrific survival tale.

Miah Cerrillo, 11, spread blood on herself to give herself a greater chance of surviving by making herself appear dead to the shooter.


Blanca Rivera, Miah’s aunt, told KPRC that her niece went into survival mode after seeing her instructor, best friend, and classmates slaughtered in front of her.

“My sister-in-law stated [Miah] saw her friend covered in blood and went out and grabbed some blood and put it on herself,” she explained.

Bullet pieces were found in the 11-year-back old’s, but she was treated and released from the hospital.

Miah, who also has a younger sister who attends Robb Elementary School and is unharmed throughout the carnage, arrived home to find everything in order. But after a few hours, the young girl couldn’t take it any longer.

“I suppose it just hit Miah,” says the narrator. Everything, I believe, has come to fruition. Rivera recalls her sister-in-law telling her, “We’re home, and she’s just crying and having a panic attack.”

According to the family, the only thing they can do at this point is “pray and ask God to help us go ahead through this crisis.” They will continue to support Miah in any way she needs.

It’s challenging to comprehend what these poor children went through. They were seated in their classrooms when their lives were turned upside-down instantly.

Change is required, and it is needed now.
