Kellye Taylor was at recess with her students last Friday, when a man ran up, stabbed her in the neck, and ran off. She was able to gasp, “Calm down. Call 911,” as her students screamed and her fellow teacher began to panic.
By the time the paramedics arrived, there was nothing they could do. Taylor, 53, was covered in her own blood as her pupils rolled back in her eyes. Her sister Mary Bryant, who was there while the paramedics made a valiant attempt to save her, said, "They didn't stop working, they didn't stop working. But I knew she was gone already."
