Paris: The 19-year-old Australian who was shot at the Bataclan theatre during Friday's terror attack in Paris has left hospital but is still traumatised by the experience, her family says.
Emma Parkinson escaped the gunmen in the concert hall by dropping to the floor then climbing over a barrier to freedom - though she was shot in the thigh before reaching safety.
The family released a statement on Tuesday via the Australian embassy in Paris.
Emma's mother Lisa and uncle Michael arrived in Paris on Monday and they rushed to the hospital bedside where Emma was recovering from surgery on Saturday.
Emma has now been released from hospital and she and her mother "are now spending some much needed quality time together", Mr Parkinson said.
"Physically, Emma is doing much better and she is expected to make a good recovery," he said.
But the emotional wound will take longer to heal - Mr Parkinson said she was "in no condition" to speak publicly yet about her ordeal.
"Obviously Emma has gone through an horrific experience and it will take her some time to come to terms with it," he said.
The family also extended its thoughts and condolences to the family and friends of the victims of the attack.
Mr Parkinson said he wanted to thank everyone for the "outpouring of support" during this difficult time.
"The warmth and kindness we are experiencing is overwhelming and we are incredibly grateful," he said.
The family thanked Australian ambassador Stephen Brady for his support, the staff at the hospital who cared for Emma, and Qantas and Telstra for practical support: airfares and accommodation.
