LAS VEGAS (KGTV) -- A San Diego woman recovering after the shooting in Las Vegas was paid a visit by Astronaut Mark Kelly Wednesday. 

Tina Frost was with her boyfriend and group of friends at the Route 91 Harvest Festival when bullets started flying toward them. She suffered a gunshot to the eye. Frost's boyfriend jumped into action to save her. 

“He and another gentleman carried Tina 300 yards from where she was hit to where they found a pickup truck with space on the back,” said friend Amy Klinger.


Astronaut Mark Kelly visited Frost at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, according to a Frost's friend Amy Klinger. 

Klinger sent the photos to Reporter Jennifer Kastner who was in Vegas for coverage of what is now known as the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history. 
Mark Kelly's wife, former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, suffered a gunshot to the head in 2011, when a gunman opened fire on a constituents meeting in Tucson. Six people were killed.
