18-year-old Mason Endres was one of 23 people injured at South By Southwest early Thursday morning when a man plowed through a barrier and into a crowd, killing 2. This weekend, one of her favorite bands, Jared and the Mill, played a few songs at her bedside.
According to a doctor interviewed by the Austin American-Statesman, Endres suffered a number of major injuries, including a cervical spine fracture, a broken nose, a broken femur, and a severed artery in her opposite leg. The doctor also noted that Endres was concussed during the accident — in which her friend describes her as being hit "like a bowling pin" — and doesn't remember much of what happened.
The same will not be said for this moment.
