LAS VEGAS - A Maryland native who was wounded during the Las Vegas shooting massacre is showing positive signs of improvement as she continues to recover in the hospital. She also received a special visit from one of the stars of the television show “Nashville.”
According to a GoFundMe page that has raised over $500,000 for Tina Frost, the 27-year-old woman is still in a non-medically induced coma, but is responding to commands during physical therapy.
On Tuesday, actor Charles Esten stopped by the hospital to visit Frost. A message posted on the GoFundMe page said:
Another message on the GoFundMe page on Wednesday night said Frost was able to make even more progress in her recovery as she was able to follow her nurse's commands to squeeze her hands and move her toes. Frost also received a visit from Mark Kelly, former NASA astronaut and husband of former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords.
Frost grew up in Anne Arundel County in Maryland and graduated from Arundel High School, where he was a standout soccer player.
Frost currently resides in San Diego and was attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas with her boyfriend and a group of friends. She suffered devastating injuries during the tragic shooting.
“The bullet went through her right eye and traveled into her forehead,” said family friend Amy Klinger. “She had to have three hours of surgery at which time they removed her right eye. And her forehead was shattered.”
Frost’s long-term prognosis is still unclear as is the extent of her brain damage.
