    That type of injury is usually not surviveable, and, if survived, usually leads to very severe impairment.
       In videos, she walks as though she has some loss of function on one side of her body, as well as having the speech mpairment.
      A lot of things had to go right for her to survive that assault. It's a credit to the first responders, the ER, the surgeons, and the rehab staff that she is still with us.
