U.S. & World

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WPTV/NBC News) A 3-year-old girl shot in a road rage incident in October is well on her way to recovery.

Police say Preslie Jenkins was sitting in her car seat when a bullet struck her in the head on October 28th.

Since then, she’s been recovering at the Palm Beach Children’s Hospital. 

“She was really on death’s door when she came in,” said Dr. Lauren Schwartz, a pediatric neurosurgeon who treated Preslie when she got to St. Mary’s Medical Center. “She’s a fighter.”

Dr. Craig Lichtblau, the medical director of Pediatric Rehab Services said Preslie was functionally “zero” when she got to rehab, but with aggressive therapy, she’s now able to speak and move.
