Laura Baptist Middleton, the principal of Sadie Vernon High School, is recovering at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital after she was found lying on the floor of her office at the Sadie Vernon High School at about 2:30 this afternoon.
She was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where she is being treated and monitored. Her condition has been declared stable.
Reports to Amandala by students are that the vice principal went into the principal’s office and found her lying on the floor. An ambulance was called, which came quickly. Soldiers who were on the compound went into the office and assisted the ambulance technicians, and put Middleton on a stretcher and put her into the ambulance. She was then rushed away.
The student said that they had been concerned for her because she had looked too rigid on the stretcher when she was taken out.
