“Miracle” Kid Wakes Up

An amazing recovery for a Vancouver man who nearly died after being attacked in Redding, California.  Tyler Burton, 21, was out with friends over Halloween when a stranger punched him in the face.  His head hit the concrete and he suffered a severe brain injury.  His mother, Kimberly Burton, says doctors thought he would be in a vegetative state the rest of his life; but he's surprised them by waking up.  Tyler returned to Vancouver last week.  He's able to talk and recognize people.  He faces 5 to 6 hours of physical therapy a day as he continues to recover.
