Virginia Tech Student From Carteret County Speaks


Watson's a sophomore, at Virginia Tech, from Carteret County. The shootings are a tragedy, that she says seem surreal even now that's she’s safe at home in Cape Carteret. Corrine is a biology major and first found out about the initial shooting on Monday from a friend. She says she didn't believe the news. As the death toll continued to rise, Corrine parked herself in front of the television, at her off campus apartment in Blacksburg, and spent the afternoon calling her parents and roommates. She says its still impossible to understand why these senseless deaths had to happen. Corrine says she didn't know any of the students of faculty that perished on Monday, and that she doesn't believe she had ever seen Cho Seung-Hui on campus.
