She is recovering from surgery and is expected to make a full recovery. Nick Yowler was unharmed during the incident.

As both families mourn the loss of Matt, they ask for everyone to give them distance and time. Again, the families thank everyone for their love, prayers and ask that we respect their families' wishes," said Rob Scott, Attorney for the McQuinn and Yowler families, in a statement.
