    I'm pretty sure u can plug it into a computer by usb & retrieve them that way. I'm not sure of all the steps, but they should be under a file named DCIM or something similar.

    As dctokyo mentioned, you're out of luck if the phone doesn't turn on. Technically they are retrievable, but it's usually just OEMs that have access to the software/hardware required to do so.

    Next time, she can use services like Dropbox or Google + to automatically back up her photos and videos in case anything were to happen again.
