Student injured in terror attack went to school next day ‘because he was working on 100% perfect attendance’

A 17-year-old student from Stuyvesant High School who was injured in Tuesday’s terrorist attack returned to class on Wednesday as he was trying to reach 100% attendance, reported Aaron Katersky and Emily Shapiro for ABC News.

The student, who asked not to be named, was aboard the bus that the terrorist struck with his truck. Another student aboard the bus, aged 14, and two adults on the bus were hurt as well.

The injured boy is reported as saying, “I told myself I’m going to be fine because a lot of people want to help me.”
