    EY Employee Shot in Las Vegas Out of Coma

    By | October 16, 2017

    Tina Frost, the EY employee who was shot in Las Vegas at the Route 91 Festival, has awoken from her coma and is showing improvement, according to an update on the GoFundMe page written by her family’s spokesperson:

    Today has also been a big day for our TT – 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! We are so proud of our Tina, and everyone is amazed at every single movement she makes. EY San Diego sent a colorful RARE Science teddy bear that she hugs and pats on the back to show us she likes him :). The Jabbawockeez (won America’s Best Dance Crew) paid her a special visit today in her room and they also put on a little show for the hospital.

    The update goes on to say that the doctors caring for Ms. Frost are deciding on the facilities that can support her recovery, “both short term and long term and all the surgeries she will have.”

    The GoFundMe page has raised over $556,000 from over 9,000 donors to-date.

      This is terrific news. Sounds like she has a long recovery ahead, but she’s already making progress.

      there’s nothing more american than getting shot by a crazed white dude at a country music festival and then having to solicit fundraising to pay off the medical bills.

        Isn’t there a fund that is supposed to help the victims ? (sorry I’m French).
