An experimental treatment at the University of Louisville is helping a man stand again, 14 years after he suffered a devastating injury.
Keith Smith was getting ready to become a firefighter in California when a motorcycle accident left him paralyzed.
“I was 23. I just got my EMT license. I was ready to take on the world with three kids, little kids. And my whole life came crashing down on me,” Smith told WLKY.
He woke up from a coma days later, unable to feel anything from the chest-down due to a chronic spinal cord injury.
