Las Vegas victim Tina Frost wakes from coma, takes first steps since shooting

Two weeks after she was among the hundreds injured or killed in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, one of the most seriously wounded victims reportedly emerged from her coma and took her first few steps since the Oct. 1 tragedy.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, 27-year-old Tina Frost was shot in the head as she attended a country music concert in Las Vegas.

She was in a coma and reportedly underwent surgery that led to the loss of her right eye, in which the bullet was lodged.

A GoFundMe account established to help raise money for Frost’s mounting medical bills also provides an update on her recovery.

According to Fox News, an update Friday by her mother, Mary Watson Moreland, celebrated “a big day” and several major steps in the right direction.

First, Frost reportedly emerged from her coma alert and aware of her surroundings.

“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,” the update read.

Furthermore, Moreland wrote that her daughter took her first steps not long after regaining consciousness.

“She’s obviously anxious to get her wobble back on,” the post read.

In addition to taking a total of six steps, Moreland celebrated the fact that Frost breathed without assistance for six straight hours.

Frost received a visit and bedside performance from popular dance crew The Jabbawockeez as she, her doctors and her loved ones look forward to future breakthroughs.

“The doctors have been talking about Tina’s next steps and are discussing other hospitals that will have all the specialists she’ll need during her long road to recovery,” Moreland wrote.

No one is quite sure what that road looks like, but she promised updates as available and thanked all who sent their money, thoughts and prayers in the wake of the shooting.

As of Sunday afternoon, the online fundraiser has received roughly $550,000 in donations.
