Twiggs County student remembers being stabbed by classmate

Twiggs student remembers being stabbed

MACON, GA.-- - It has been over a week since a student was stabbed at the Twiggs County High School. Now the school is implementing metal detectors.

But senior Taniah Anderson, who was stabbed last week by another student with a kitchen knife, says it is too late.

"They had to wait until something like this happened. Now they're doing it. Now they're trying to take precautions when they should've been taking precautions to prevent this from even happening,” explains Anderson.

She says it all started after an argument with a friend. Anderson says she thinks it was premeditated because another student asked what her friend was going to do to her.

While they were walking, Anderson said, the other student asked the suspect, "' What did you say you were going to do to Taniah again?' and, you know, I saw her grab her book bag, but I didn't see her grab a knife out of her book bag,"

She says she tried to fight the 15-year-old suspect, but she was stabbed in the arm and chest, and her lung was punctured.

"I was just like, 'Please don't let me die,' and, you know, I saw the blood and it was just shooting out, and you know, I was so scared,” recalls Anderson.

She says other students walked by, but she was thankful a teacher rushed out to help.

"She was like, 'Just breathe.' She said, 'Please don't go to sleep, just stay woke.' She was like, 'Just talk to me,'” says Anderson.

She says that helped her make it through long enough to get to the hospital. Anderson says she has learned to listen to her mother's advice.

"She told me, 'Everybody is not your friend and they're just waiting for that right time to whatever they can to hurt you,'” says Anderson.

She says she was taken to the hospital last Wednesday where they had to insert a drainage tube into her lung and stitch up her stab wounds. She was released on Sunday.
