He was told he would never walk, talk or ride again. But today we have more evidence South Bend BMX star Brett Banasiewicz is proving doctors wrong following an accident that left him seriously hurt nearly one year ago.
Banasiewicz posted a video to his Instagram account of some moves at an indoor skate park.
"I'm so happy to post this video. Words cannot describe my feelings right now," he wrote on the post.
The Washington High School student was seriously injured last August when he fell 8 feet during a practice session in Virginia and landed on his head.
He's moved back to South Bend from a rehab facility out of state.
His mother says he still struggles with his speech but his riding is getting stronger. He is undergoing physical therapy and rehab.
