On the day of the shooting, 15-year-old Anthony Borges barricaded a door with his body and was shot five times through the door.

A U.S. teenager who used his body to block a door and save his classmates during the Florida school shooting in February has finally left hospital, USA media report.

His parents, too, feel fortunate that their son survived.

The family's lawyer, Alex Arreaza, told the news outlet that they plan on suing Broward County, Broward County Public Schools and the sheriff's office, for their "failure to protect students".

Arreaza told The Washington Post that one bullet had "clipped" the teen's liver and three others had hit his legs.
