Las Vegas Shooting Victim Takes First Steps After Critical Injury Las Vegas shooting victim wakes up from coma, takes first steps after getting shot in the head

The 27-year-old Arundel High School alumnae, who works in California as an accountant, is waking up from a coma after being shot through the eye on October 1.

Crofton native and Las Vegas mass shooting victim Tina Frost will continue her recovery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.

Frost, an accountant, lost her right eye after being shot in the head when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, killing 58 people and injuring almost 500 others at the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival.

Moreland said doctors removed her daughter's right eye, where the bullet was lodged.

The post says that Tina also breathed on her own for six hours.

Tina Frost, 27, was shot by Stephen Paddock along with hundreds of other people in the attack that also left 58 people dead.

"She opens her left eye and looks all around the room at us and also took her first steps today with the assistance of the nurses", Frost's mother, Mary Watson Moreland, wrote on Friday.

PSA ' planning to cut 400 jobs at Vauxhall factory'
The carmaker will brief workers at the site, which has almost 1,800 employees and produces about 680 Astra vehicles a day, today. The four millionth Vauxhall Astra rolled off the production line at the Ellesmere Port factory in September.

The GoFundMe post said Tina is obviously anxious to get her wobble back on. But looking back on the surgery Saturday morning, Blum told the Las Vegas Review-Journal his patient's eye injury may have helped prevent secondary injuries.

Her survival was 'miraculous, ' he said. Frost underwent a very delicate, three-hour surgery, and some bullet fragments remain in her brain. "She'll need a lot of long-term help".

After waking up Friday, Frost seemed to be in good spirits and took her first steps since the shooting. Reconstructive surgery will be necessary to fix Frost's face and eyes. "She certainly has challenges ahead, but we're going in the right direction and that's all that matters right now".

"She was giving us signs", Blum said.

Frost graduated from Arundel High School in 2008.

The most successful of these donation drives was started by Steve Sisolak, Clark County Commission Chair from Las Vegas. Last week she was serenaded by Charles Esten, who plays Deacon on one of Frost's favorite shows, "Nashville", and visited by astronaut Mike Kelly, husband of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords who was shot in the head in 2011.
