Anthony Borges who used his body to shield other students during the Parkland school shooting is back in ICU after emergency surgery. Anthony, 15 years old, was shot 5 times and has been recovering well. His Father posted this on Facebook.
“Our son, Anthony had to be rushed into an emergency operation after days of showing signs of a possible infection in his abdomen,” Borges wrote. “After an MRI, the doctors noted that yes, a section of his intestines had a small infection due to the type of bullet and the expansive hole it made in his body. That’s when doctors decided to operate and cut a section of his small intestine, so my son, Tony’s life, would not be compromised. It might take three or four more surgeries during these days to come as they assure me they have to clean him out and that all his organs are out of danger. I am grateful for all the support given and please do not forget to pray for me and my family.”
