Stephanie Bongiovi, 19, is recovering after the Nov. 14 incident at Hamilton College in upstate New York.
"This tragedy was something that I had to face, too, so we'll get through it. And people's warm wishes for my family and I have been really reassuring. So, we're good," the married father of four told TV's Fox 11, speaking publicly for the first time about the ordeal.
