HOUSTON, Texas (AP) – A 15-year-old girl suburban Houston girl who survived an attack in which her parents and four younger siblings were killed says she’s on the road to recovery.

The Houston Chronicle reports that Cassidy Stay also thanked first responders Saturday during a gathering in her hometown of Spring to honor her and her family.

Stay was released from a hospital Friday, two days after the attack in which her skull was fractured by a bullet graze.

Authorities say her aunt’s ex-husband, Ronald Lee Haskell, stormed into the family’s home Wednesday and fatally shot her parents and four siblings, who ranged in age from 4 to 13 years old.

They say Stay survived by playing dead and called police to warn that Haskell intended to go to her grandparents’ house next.
