An amazing teacher posted a video onto Facebook showing the scenes when she calmly protected her class whilst a drug cartel gun battle went on nearby.
The video, posted below, has taken the internet by storm after it was discovered by local news.
Class teacher, Martha Rivera Alanis can be heard asking the children to lie on the floor and stay down. “No, my love, nothing is going to happen, just put your little face on the floor,” she tells one girl.
During the shoot out there were 5 people shot and killed at a nearby taxi stand in Monterrey.
The teacher has since received an award for her bravery by the state’s governor.
What an amazing teacher!
