Nate Scimio has been identified as the Franklin Regional High School student who is being hailed as a hero for pulling a fire alarm and screaming shortly after being stabbed by a 16-year-old sophomore at the Pittsburgh-area school.

Without naming Nate, Murrysville, Pa., Police Chief Thomas Seefeld said the move to pull the fire alarm prevented more stabbings -- and possibly saved lives. The suspect’s name has not been released, but he is in custody.

“It was a good thing that was done,” Seefeld told a news conference Wednesday morning.

Janelle Hall of Pittsburgh television station WTAE tweeted the following photo of Scimio taking a selfie and wearing a hospital gown. His right arm is also bandaged:
