One-year-old girl has teeth knocked out, shrapnel in her chest, from Texas shooting
The grim mass shooting in Texas that took the lives of seven people has endangered the life of a young girl. Anderson Davis, a 17-month-old girl was lucky to escape death that happened last Saturday.
The incident happened in Odessa when the police pulled over a man in a high-jacked mail truck who suddenly went on a shooting rampage. A local restaurant worker informed the New York Times that he saw Anderson sitting in her car seat with blood all over her. With all of this going on, the little girl was still conscious. Shortly after, Anderson was airlifted to the University Medical Center in Lubbock where she currently stays.
The young girl is still in pretty bad shape with Governor Greg Abbot reading a message from the child's mother who explained the damage. Her teeth were knocked out by a bullet and she will undergo surgery to remove the shrapnel inside her chest. She also suffers from a hole through her bottom lip and tongue. In the message, Anderson's mother told the governor that though her child had many injuries, she is still relatively well.
A GoFundMe page was arranged by a family friend who confirmed that Anderson is one of the many who were injured. In the post, the child's mother updated donors saying "Anderson is alive and that is a prayer answered bigger than I've ever had to pray. Her vitals are good". She asked for people to pray for her daughter's complete recovery and to also pray that no family ever has to face it. She even asked that people pray for the shooters, that whatever the reason is as to what is causing them to commit such horrible crimes, that they'd be defeated by God and stop shooting.
