'Huge milestone' for woman shot in Vegas massacre

CROFTON, MD (WUSA9) - The Maryland native shot in the head during the October 1 shooting massacre in Las Vegas has left an inpatient rehab facility just in time for the holidays, her family says.

Tina Frost “can enjoy her family and friends and some normalcy and doing some more on her own,” her mother Mary Watson Moreland said on Facebook. She called it “a huge milestone for our Tina.”

Frost, a 2008 Arundel High School graduate, and her boyfriend drove from San Diego to attend the Route 91 Harvest Festival. One of Stephen Paddock’s bullets destroyed Frost’s right eye and forehead, leaving the former soccer star in a coma for weeks.

“She walked out of the inpatient rehabilitation hospital two days ago, got into Austin’s car and will have several days off from all of the doctors, nurses, therapists, dietitians, technicians and everyone else who knocks on her door every five minutes,” said Moreland on Facebook. 

The 27-year-old’s family said she gets “stronger and better every day” and will continue outpatient therapy.

An official GoFundMe has now brought in more than $607,000 in donations. The chairman of Ernst & Young, where Frost worked as an accountant in San Diego, encouraged all of the company’s 231,000 employees to donate.

“It’s unbelievable,” said family spokesperson Amy Klinger. “She’s going to have a lot of therapy and she will need a lot of reconstructive surgery. But the family feels incredibly supported.”
