A Maryland woman who had been hurt in the Las Vegas shooting begun walking with assistance and has woken up from a coma.

In accordance with a GoFundMe page setup for Tina Frost, the 27-year-old took three steps to a chair and three steps back to her hospital bed Friday. Mary Watson Moreland, Tina’s mother, wrote on the page that Frost was also able to breathe on her own for six hours.

Moreland said her daughter’s right eye was removed by doctors. Doctors also removed a bone in Frost’s forehead to brain swelling.
