On The Six Newtown 911 Calls, Terror And Pleas For Help
Dave AltimariWith terror in her voice, Barbara Halstead begged with police dispatchers for help, ending her 24-second 911 call with the haunting plea of "Sandy Hook School please" as 11 gunshots rang out in the background.
Those shots fired by Adam Lanza were in the hallway of the school on Dec. 14. Principal Dawn Hochsprung and school psychologist Mary Sherlach were the first of 26 victims, including 20 first-graders, killed in the rampage.
After months of debate, Newtown officials Wednesday released six 911 calls received by the police department as the shooting was unfolding. Halstead's was the first made that morning. Custodian Rick Thorne could be heard on at least three. He spent more than 10 minutes on the phone with dispatchers.
