A Fox News reporter in Denver reported on the shooting Wednesday at East High School by reuniting with her son, a student at the school, in an emotional moment on air.
Fox reporter Alicia Acuna spotted her son while reporting live from outside the school after two faculty members were shot by a student there earlier in the day.
“Excuse me, my son just came in, and I haven’t seen him,” Acuna told “America Reports” anchors midway through the broadcast.
The reporter’s son walks into view of the camera and the couple embrace in a tight embrace.
“I’m sorry, I haven’t seen my baby,” Acuna said, growing affectionate. “I am so sorry, there is no way to let your child pass.”
She said her son was fine and he was the one who told her something happened at his high school. He was texting her while the cops and emergency department were arriving at the building.
“I was sitting in my office, working on a different story, and I started getting text messages from my son, saying he was at a rally, and then all of a sudden, there were police officers everywhere, there were ambulances, the rally was closed and there were cops guarding their door.
Acuna gave her report as a parent feeling anxious — and frustrated — at school.
The suspect, identified as 17-year-old Austin Lyle, was reportedly beaten by school officials daily over concerns about his behaviour.
Lyle, who was found dead of an apparent suicide Wednesday night, shot and wounded two faculty members who were searching him for weapons shortly before 10 a.m., officials said. One of the victims has been discharged from hospital, but the second remains in critical condition. .
Acuna wondered why parents weren’t aware of the school’s daily monitoring programs.
“I had no idea, and a lot of other parents have no idea, that their kids were going to the same school with other kids they were on a plan, and they were parenting because there was enough anxiety to do that every day,” she said.
The journalist and mom added, “When I asked why the parents weren’t told about this, the supervisor told me it was to protect the privacy of the people being brought up.” “As a parent, my question is, ‘What about the safety and concerns we have for all of our students?'” “There is an enormous amount of frustration right now.”
