One six-year-old child survived the Newtown school massacre that killed 15 members of her class by playing dead. Here’s ABC News.

“She ran out of the school building covered in blood from head to toe and the first words she said to her mom when she got outside was, mommy, I'm okay, but all my friends are dead.”

According to Headline Pong, the unnamed girl’s story was revealed after her mother attended grief counseling with a local pastor. She waited until she believed it was safe hiding among the bodies, then ran from the building.

The pastor said the girl’s family is doing “as well as you can expect them to do,” and while they are relieved to have their daughter home they feel some survivor’s guilt because many of their friends lost children.

According to ABC News, she was the first student to run out of Sandy Hook Elementary School. The other 15 members of her class were among the 28 people killed in Friday’s shooting.

Funerals for the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting begin today.
