Boger is one of the 21 people injured during a stabbing spree allegedly unleashed by 16-year-old Alex Hribal at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville on Wednesday.

The knife went through Boger's liver, sliced his diaphragm and missed his heart and aorta by a few millimeters.

Three other victims remain in critical condition at Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville.
