3-Year-Old Girl Shot in Head During Road-Rage Incident Is Walking Again
Little Preslie has made what doctors are calling a miraculous recovery.
A 3-year-old is walking again after being shot in the head during a “road rage" nightmare.
Preslie Jenkins was shot while riding with her mom in Florida on Oct. 28. Preslie’s mom, Nikki Jenkins, said a random person in a black car shot into their vehicle, hitting the toddler.
A 911 call detailed the horrid moment authorities were called after the shooting. “Hold on, baby. Breathe! Breathe! Breathe!” someone can be heard saying.
The bullet reportedly hit Preslie above her eyebrow and came out through her skull.
Preslie was rushed to St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, where she underwent six hours of surgery and was placed in a medically induced coma for two weeks. Doctors had to remove a part of her brain and skull, Jenkins told InsideEdition.com.
In the beginning, Jenkins said she had no idea what her daughter’s prognosis would be.
Her recovery has been unexpectedly speedy, however.
Now, the toddler is talking and is walking with assistance. Jenkins said Preslie doesn’t even know what happened.
Preslie will remain under doctors' supervision for at least another month, but the outlook is good, her mom said.
Police have not identified a suspect in the case.
