Dan Dillard tore his aorta and shattered his pelvis when he was in a motorcycle crash on Bear Creek Road.
His wife Sharon says he's slated to undergo surgery to repair his pelvis this Thursday. He has certainly defied the odds.
"We're just so thankful, police and fire immediately got him to the hospital and they gave him 15 units of blood. Many people worked on him and we're just so thankful for al the workers at St. Charles."
Monday was Dan's 61st birthday. He continues to fight an infection with antibiotics. He's now off a respirator and breathing on his own.
