A witness recalled seeing her trying to reach for her daughter but she was unable to keep her head up. Miles was rushed to the ICU to fight for her life.

But now, it has been confirmed that she is out of the ICU and is making a recovery.


Surprisingly, her pregnancy was completely unharmed. Lew and the fifth victim were both expected to make a full recovery as well.
