1st Grade Student Shoots Teacher

A female Virginia student was shot by a 1st grader, and talks to the Today show about it in an upcoming interview.

In an interview set to air on the “TODAY” show today, Zwerner revealed that she is confronting “obstacles and challenges” due to undergoing several surgeries after being shot in her left hand and upper chest.

This marks the first time she has spoken publicly about her experience.

Abigail Zwerner, the Virginia teacher who was deliberately shot by a 6-year-old student during class, has revealed that her recovery process continues to be arduous.

During an interview with “TODAY” co-anchor Savannah Guthrie, Zwerner shared that her occupational therapy sessions have been so taxing that they have left her drained both physically and mentally.

Zwerner mentioned that her physical wounds are gradually healing, which includes a scar on the side of her body where a chest tube was inserted by doctors to treat her collapsed lung.
