Piers Morgan airs 911 of Georgia bookkeeper convincing gun-wielding man to surrender without incident

On Tuesday, an armed 20-year-old, who admitted to being mentally unstable, opened fire with an assault weapon inside of a Georgia elementary school. Despite a situation which authorities agreed could easily have been the next Sandy Hook, no one was hurt, a reality thanks in large part to Antoinette Tuff.

The bookkeeper at the Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy just outside Atlanta, Tuff was caught in a room with the shooter – Michael Brandon Hill – and convinced him to surrender all while staying on the phone with authorities.

On Wednesday evening, CNN obtained a copy of the 911 call made by Tuff, and Piers Morgan aired it in its entirety, praising the Georgia woman for her extraordinary courage.

During an exchange that spanned more than 10 minutes, Tuff told Hill she cared about him, that she was proud of him, and even offered to walk out of the building by his side, in a display of loyalty.

Watch the clip above, as the woman being praised as a hero persuades a dangerous gunman to put down his weapons, and lay on the floor, allowing for police to enter the school and contain the situation.

With countless lives saved, and a near certain disaster avoided, Tuff can be heard breathing a well-earned sigh of relief, before admitting to the 911 operator that she had "never been so scared in all the days in my life."
