WACO, Texas — A paramedic who was in the hospital for over four months after being severely injured by a car is using a walker to walk again.
Barros was pinned against his ambulance after being hit by a drunk driver at the scene of a crash and has been in the hospital for more than four months.
The paramedic has been home since Christmas, but was confined to a wheelchair until his therapist stood him up with a walker. Soon after, Barros was moving freely around his home.
Barros hopes to return to work sometime this year.
