“I can’t believe it’s me right now,” Saltarelli told CBS2. “I looked down and I’m like, ‘oh my god, oh my god, I’m shot, I’m shot!’”

Witnesses helped wrap her arm and rushed her to a local hospital. She’s expected to recover.

“I have to be strong and have to get back out there,” she said. “I can’t let this stop me from living my life.”
