1D ‘sends love to victim’
One Direction wanted to “share some love” with a fan who was shot in the head.
Claire Davis, 16, was shot in the head during an attack at Arapahoe High School last week.
When the band found out Claire was a huge fan of their music, they wanted to wish her a speedy recovery.
“Hi, Claire. We hear you’re a big fan and we just wanted to show you some love,” singer Liam Payne said in the 13-second clip posted on YouTube.
“What’s happened to you is absolutely terrible and we can’t bear thinking about it. So we just wanted to share some love with you. All our prayers with you and your family. Hope you get well soon,” he added.
Claire is a senior at the school and has been in a coma since the teen gunman shot her in the head at point-blank range with a shotgun.
The shooter then turned the gun on himself.
Since the tragedy, Claire’s friends have been sending #Get1DtoClaire messages on Twitter to persuade the popular boy band to visit the teen.
This isn’t the first time the group has sent a special video message to a fan.
Last year Niall Horan recorded an 11-second clip for 15-year-old Melena Butera.
The Irish heart-throb took time out of his busy schedule to give a special shout-out to Melena, an American teenager with Down's Syndrome whose One Direction-themed video caught the attention of fans around the world.
“[Your film was] absolutely incredible ... You're a massive fan we know," Niall said.”All the love from the boys.”
