RAW: University Medical Center's Thursday news conference on shooting victims

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. - Doctors at University Medical Center spoke about Rep. Gabrielle Giffords condition on Thursday.

They confirmed what President Barack Obama announced to the audience at Wednesday night's memorial that she did in fact open her eyes.

They also said they were doing physical therapy with her and she was able to move both her legs when they were dangled off the side of the bed.

Her condition remains critical, but she is progressing well. The next major step in her recovery will be removing her breathing tube which doctors hope to do within the next couple of days.

Giffords was one of 19 people shot at her "Congress on the Corner" event in Tucson on Saturday. Six people were killed, including a 9-year-old girl and a federal judge. A total of 13 were wounded; five of them, including Giffords, remain in the hospital.
