Mayah Zamora, the final survivor of the May 24 mass shooting in Uvalde, left San Antonio’s University Hospital after two months of recovery. The 10-year-old girl was able to walk out of the hospital Friday afternoon, July 29, thanking staff as she made her way out. She is finally able to return home. 

University Hospital posted a video of Mayah to Twitter on Friday showing her walking down the hospital hallway handing roses to nurses and other hospital staff as they chanted her name. 

“She is our hero and we can’t wait to see all she accomplishes in the future,” the tweet read. 

Mayah was one of the many people injured in the shooting. She was admitted into University Hospital the day of the shooting where a gunman entered the school and killed 19 kids and two teachers. She received multiple gunshot wounds. 

Mayah captured the heart and attention of country music state Kevin Fowler earlier this month. Saying that she was a big fan, Fowler stopped by the hospital to visit Mayah and take photos with her. He helped boost a GoFundMe page created to help pay for her medical expenses and future treatment as she continues to recover. It has since raised $103,790. 

“This whole experience really hit home with me,” Fowler wrote online. “I have three daughters and I can’t imagine one of my babies going through this.”
