A Henry Pratt Manufacturing employee spoke exclusively to the Scott Slocum show on WJOL. He was supposed to be in a meeting with the shooter Gary Martin on the second floor to terminate his employment but was called to deal with a minor injury on the main floor of the plant. The employee stayed on the phone with 911 while texting his wife, not knowing whether he was going to live or die.
