How a Drive-By Shooting Changed Little Girl's Life Forever

An Atlanta family was forever changed in just seconds following a random act of violence.

Kyndall, who is just 9 years old, was hit in the arm by a stray bullet during a drive-by shooting. Authorities are still searching for whoever fired at least a dozen shots at the apartment building where Kyndall and her family live. Kyndall's mom, Whitney tells The Doctors she and her family were enjoying a normal night together and were getting ready for bed when the incident occurred. Luckily, her daughter survived and joins the show.

"I'm feeling blessed that I have a family that loves me and that I'm still alive," she says.

Kyndall is still dealing with the aftereffects of being shot and The Doctors arrange for her to receive counseling from Therapeutic Management Services and physical therapy from One on One Physical Therapy. Also, Mychal Wilson and his law firm generously donated $5,000 to help the family with their medical bills.

"It's a sad situation because it could have just as easily been anyone's child. It was something that just didn't have to happen. We feel tremendously blessed that she is okay and she's getting through it. She is the strongest person I know," Whitney says of her daughter.
