Blanca Rivera, who lives in Houston, said her niece was a student at Robb Elementary School, where the Uvalde massacre took place.
Rivera is still trying to get all the details about what happened in her niece’s classroom.
Previously, she said she knew the suspected shooter, Salvador Ramos, walked into the classroom and opened fire.
Rivera said her niece’s boyfriend was shot and her niece was hit by shrapnel. The niece remains in the hospital.
Despite this being such a terrifying experience, at this point the 11-year-old’s family is just grateful that she is okay.
“She’s like another daughter to me, so it makes me very nervous and anxious. You are so far away. It’s not like I’m there. ‘ Rivera said.
