Star of Real Housewives of Orange County Meghan King Edmonds has opened up about how Hayley, her stepdaughter is doing following the shocking Las Vegas mass shooting. The girl was in attendance at the Jason Aldean show at the Harvest Country Music Festival when it all happened, and now she is apparently struggling with PTSD.
‘She was lucky to come out totally unscathed, physically, but the emotional and mental healing process will go on for years and years. But we are just thankful she just ran. She just ran and ran and ran and did not stop running. Her roommate actually grabbed her, and was like, ‘No, let’s go,’ ’cause Haley wanted to lay down, but her roommate was like, ‘No, we have got to keep going,’’ King Edmonds stated, adding that now, the girl is going to therapy and doing much better.
Hayley took to social media shortly after the mass shooting took place to share some pics taken from before the tragedy and addressed the trauma and sadness that filled her.
These pictures were taken 6 minutes before the shooting started. I am so unbelievably saddened by this event. You truly never understand until it happens to you and the people you love. I have no words for how traumatizing this experience was for me, my friends and my family. I'll never forget this night unfortunately, but I am so thankful how lucky and fortunate we were to have made it out of there. I've never felt such a feeling as I did knowing I had to run to save my own life. My best friend and I ran while everyone else ducked for cover and we didn't look back. I think that's why we are here right now, alive. We didn't think we just ran and stayed together. I hope I never have to experience such a traumatic moment ever again. The world is a cruel place and I don't even know how to comment on such an unbelievable tragedy. I am so thankful that every single person I knew is home safe and sound now and feel such guilt and sadness for the people who are suffering. I can't help but think my mom was watching over us last night. I have no other explanation for all of us making it out of there alive. I love you all and I am safe and sound with my sister and brother and law tonight who are keeping me company. Wishing nothing but good thoughts for the people who were affected❤️ #prayforvegas #route91harvest
We are glad Hayley is alright and that she’s strong enough to work through her PTSD.
