Maryland Woman Shot In Las Vegas Attack Opens Eye, Continues To Improve

Maryland Woman Shot In Las Vegas Attack Opens Eye, Continues To Improve

A San Diego woman who sustained grievous injuries during the mass shooting in Las Vegas has woken up from a coma and begun walking.

Last week, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, who oversees the Las Vegas police department, told reporters that gunman Stephen Paddock shot at Mandalay Bay hotel security guard Jesus Campos outside his room on October 1 at about the same time he opened fire on the more than 20,000 concertgoers at an outdoor venue, Reuters reported. The spokesperson also wrote that Frost breathed on her own for six hours.

Tina was attending the gig with her boyfriend, Austin Hughes, when Paddock opened fire on crowds from a room at the Mandalay Bay hotel, killing 58 people and injuring almost 500. "She sometimes taps to music and also took her first steps today with the assistance of the nurses - 3 steps to the chair and 3 steps back to the bed", the post reads.

Mary Frost's GoFundMe page for her daughter has raised $545,000 so far - nearly 11 times its original goal. Still, her family has been posting frequent Facebook updates about Frost's condition, and according to Frost's mother, Mary Watson Moreland, Frost continues to improve each day.

"We've heard people ask, 'Well, why does she need all that money?'" Frost's cousin, Randi Moreland, said at a fundraising event.

"It was very much touch and go throughout the surgery, but she came out very well", said Amy. The bullet pierced the frontal lobes of her brain before ricocheting, landing in her right eye.

It's unclear how many more surgeries Frost will face, but she will have to go back under the knife to fix her facial and eye areas. "What you're hoping for are skull fractures, people who've been grazed". We want to her help her out any way we can. A group of Frost's friends from her time at Arundel High School raised $2,600 at a "Frostie Brews for a fast recovery" event on Saturday.

But it was on Friday that her strength and determination to get well really showed.

Frost's list of famous visitors is getting longer, after the Jabbawockeez, a hip-hop dance group known as the first winners of "America's Best Dance Crew", stopped by to perform in her room at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center on Friday.
