Kim Wilkins was spending time with her family at the Chapman Dam beach, when the sound of gunfire rang out.
"I knew I got hit by something, like a bullet, because we heard it," said Wilkins. "We heard the shot and then I got hit."
Wilkins was hit by a stray bullet in the shoulder.
"At that time, I didn't know if I was going to make it," said Wilkins. "Honestly, because of where I was hit."
Her son Matt was standing next to her when she was shot.
"There's a line of trees down that beach, and of 50 people, we were the very last ones," said Matt Wilkins. "That bullet went by everybody and it hit the very last person on the beach."
Kim says it took emergency crews about an hour to get her to the hospital, where she learned the true extent of her injuries.
"The bullet went through, and how I was sitting, it ended up in my arm," said Kim Wilkins. "It's lodged in my arm, and they can't remove it because it will do more damage to remove it."
Kim says it's a miracle she wasn't killed.
"That's what it was...God's mercy that got me through that day," said Kim Wilkins. "And a lot of help from friends and family."
As of now, no arrests have been made in connection to this case.
