Condition of Ventura College student injured in Las Vegas shooting improving

VENTURA, Calif. - A friend and co-worker of a victim in the Las Vegas shooting is speaking out and offering an update. 

26-year-old Ventura college student Savannah Sanchez was at the Route 91 Harvest festival when she was shot in the stomach. 

Sanchez has been recovering in a Las Vegas hospital ever since.

Her friend Yusely Herrera reached out to NewsChannel 3 to deliver some good news: Doctors say Sanchez is well enough to be taken off life support. 

“She is a strong girl and I know she is going to pull through anything,” says Herrera.

Yusely started a crowd-funding campaign to raise money for Savannah’s medical bills. 

In just under one week, she has raised more than $20,000.
