Heartbreaking texts between two brothers as they hid from a gunman at their school in Florida have been published on social media.
Sam shared the text messages with his younger brother Matthew who was in a different class in the building.
Shortly after the shooting started, Sam sent Matthew a text message asking ‘Are you okay?’.
‘Hopefully,’ Matthew responded. ‘Just know, I love you forever and your the best brother.'
‘We’re gonna get out of here I promise,’ Sam said.
Just seconds before the messages, Matthew had witnessed his geography teacher, Scott Beigel, die in front of the class.
