Maryland Native Shot in Las Vegas Massacre Makes Some Improvements: Family

A Maryland native who was shot in the head during the Las Vegas massacre is making some improvements.

Tina Frost's family posted on GoFundMe the young woman had a good night Saturday. “Her stats remain stable and as we speak she is having a trache put in,” the post said. “This is more comfortable for her and there won’t be all these tubes coming from her mouth and less risk of infection.”

She is also off her blood pressure medication.

Frost has been in a coma since the shooting Oct. 1.

Stephen Paddock, 64, unleashed gunfire on attendees of the Route 91 Harvest Festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Fifty-eight people were killed and more than 500 were wounded in the attack. Paddock killed himself before police reached his hotel room.

Frost, who grew up in Anne Arundel County and went to Arundel High School, was shot in the head. Her family said the bullet lodged in her right eye, and doctors had to remove the eye.

Frost’s family credits her boyfriend with saving her life. After she was shot, he carried her to the truck of a stranger, who drove her to a hospital.
