Gardner-Webb Graduate Who Was Shot In Las Vegas Has Just Woke Up From Coma

3054

A graduate of Gardner-Webb University, who was shot in the head during the Oct. 1 mass shooting in Las Vegas, has just woken up from her coma.

Tina Frost was one of the 500+ victims of Stephen Paddock’s mass shooting – the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

According to Dr. Keith Blum, Tina’s survival has been “miraculous.”

“I was told 90 percent of those shot as she was die,” he said. “Well, it looks like she’s in the 10 percent. … Slowly but surely she’s making progress.”

During her initial surgery, Blum removed her right eye and as many bullet fragments and shrapnel from her skull as possible. Her brain then began to swell and she went into a coma.

On the last campaign update, her mother, Mary Watson Moreland said that Frost is showing miraculous signs of recovery;

“She is now waking up! She opens her left eye just a lil and looks all around the room at us, taps her feet whenever music is playing, continues to squeeze our hands, and even gives Austin a thumbs up when asked. 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. She’s obviously anxious to get her wobble back on. She also breathed on her own for a full 6 hours!”

Her gofundme page was initially set up to raise $50,000 for Tina’s medical expenses and family travel costs, but that goal has since been exceeded by over 1,000%. So far, 9,488 people from around the world have given $555,327 to the campaign and counting.

Please continue praying for Tina, her family, and all the other victims of the Las Vegas shooting.
