Uber Driver's Shooting Victim Speaks Out: 'I Wake Up Thinking It's All a Dream, but Reality Hits'

Tiana Carruthers was shot four times outside her apartment.

— -- Tiana Carruthers, 25, still sometimes thinks “it's all a dream” after coming face to face with the Uber driver accused of a shooting rampage in Michigan this year that left six people dead and her and another victim wounded.

"I wake up thinking it's all a dream. But when I wake up, reality hits," Carruthers told ABC News' Alex Perez.

As the gunman open fired, Carruthers yelled out to her 7-year old daughter and other children playing nearby to get to safety.

"Something just told me, to tell children to run," Carruthers recalled. "And you know just being a parent, you just go off those instincts."

The children escaped unharmed.

Carruthers spent the past eight weeks in extensive rehab, but is now back home. "It's a struggle," she said.

Despite her continued journey to full recovery, she takes pride in knowing her survival has made her stronger.

"I didn't think I could get any stronger," Carruthers said, laughing gently.

"But God has really been here for me.”
