Father of two school children: It's 'worst feeling in the world'

Jery Holston, the father of two school children who were inside Washington state's Marysville-Pilchuck High School, describes to CNN's Brooke Baldwin the chaos inside the cafeteria as well as his agony, following Friday's school shooting. Quoting his son who was still inside the school, Jery Holston says the shooter was apparently a "nice kid."

    EmegenSee is an amazing app that every single person should have on their mobile device. It may not be able to stop the start of a crime or shooting spree, but it can definitely help to let law enforcement know exactly what is happening as a situation unfolds. It can also send out mass alerts. This technology could help minimize and possibly eliminate many criminal acts that occur. EmergenSee immediately streams live video, audio and GPS coordinates to capture what’s going on around you and sends that data in real time to emergency responders from your mobile device.

    The key function of EmergenSee is that it connects you with others, in a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation, so the help you need is immediately dispatched to the rescue.

    EmergenSee, Personal Security System can capture, stream and send the appropriate response team to end any dangerous situation like child abductions, crimes against women, assaults, theft and any situation that requires an emergency response. Especially now, in such dangerous times with high school shootings, college student abductions, real estate agent murders and killings of law enforcement agents, EmergenSee technology is as timely as it gets.

    Great new technology app. Everyone should download the free version of EmergenSee and test it out. Go to - For families, college students, lone workers, work staff, even kids out trick or treating.
