One Direction sends get-well video to Arapahoe shooting victim
The 17-year-old student remains in a coma following surgery at Littleton Adventist Hospital, but her friends launched a Twitter campaign called #Get1DtoClaire in order to reach out to her favorite band.
“Hi, Claire, we heard you’re a big fan and we just wanted to show you some love. What happened to you is absolutely terrible,” he says. “We can’t bear to think about it. We just want to share some love with you. All our prayers with you and your family. Hope you get well soon. Lots of love.”
Liam then gives her a thumbs-up, while Louis Tomlinson blows her a kiss.
Claire remains in critical but stable condition after being shot point-blank in the head in the Dec. 13 shooting. She was sitting in the hallway and was apparently targeted at random by the gunman, who killed himself less than two minutes later.
“ONE DIRECTION NOTICED CLAIRE WE DID IT OH MY GOD THANK YOU BOYS,” said a Tweet from Jenna Hamilton.
Teenage girls weren’t the only ones involved in the effort. Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck was among those who tweeted #Get1DtoClaire, and several Denver news stations gave a shout-out to One Direction after the video was posted.
“Thnx @onedirection for the support! You’re awesome!” said Denver 9News anchorwoman Kyle Dyer in a Tweet.
