Maddy Wilford was shot three times, in her chest, abdomen and shoulder. She was convinced she was going to die. "I'd just like to say that I'm so grateful to be here," the 17-year-old student said at an emotional press conference Monday. Wilford, a junior, was in psychology class when Nikolas Cruz allegedly fired inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Though paramedics initially thought she was dead, Maddy is now expected to make a full recovery.
