"John Wyclif" takes bullet saving FSU student



The library book that saved my life: Student shows off pages that stopped gunman's bullets

Excerpt:

A student believes a book he was carrying in his back pack saved his life during a shooting at a Florida State University library. Three people were wounded in the attack by gunman Myron May, a lawyer and school alumnus, who opened fire at 12.30am on Thursday morning. He was then shot dead by police outside of the Stozier library which was full of students studying for their exams. Jason Derfuss was walking out of the building when he was shot in the back. However he did not know he had been hit until his roommate emptied his bag at home. He found bullet holes in two of the books he had checked out just minutes before the rampage.

  2. Do you think they'll forego the fine for damaging the book if the student agrees not to sue the university? :^)
