A member of staff from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut has spoken of how her life was saved by a fellow staff member as a gunman fired shots at staff and pupils just over a week ago.
In total 27 people - including 20 children - were killed in the shootings. Twenty-year-old Adam Lanza killed his mother, attacked the school, then killed himself on December 14.
Becky Vigalla told Reuters she is " very proud to work at Sandy Hook School" and that "so many heroes were there that day."
