NEWTOWN, Conn. — Video shows first responders received a standing ovation at a Sunday night vigil and sharing their experiences at the Newton elementary school massacre.

Arriving within minutes of the first calls, responders said that although they're trained to handle such incidents, they have never experienced anything like it.

"I wish we could've done more, to see those little faces," one responder said.
