Noah Pozner’s older sister survived the Newtown shooting massacre when her teacher bundled her class into a closet at the school, a relative said.

Sophia Pozner’s teacher took the lifesaving action when she heard gunfire erupt inside Sandy Hook Elementary School, uncle Alexis Haller told CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

“Sophie’s teacher put all the kids in the closet and hushed them,” Haller said. “The kiiler thought there were no kids in there and closed the door.”

Twenty-seven people, including 20 children, were killed in the Friday shooting spree. Sophie Pozner escaped along with Noah’s twin sister, Arielle.

“The ionly positive (is) when i see Noah’ siblings (who) both survived,” Haller said.
