Broken Arrow Accident Victim Works To Receive Bionic Suit
OKLAHOMA CITY - A young man's dream to walk again is put on hold. Broken Arrow's Brandon Stone lost the use of his legs seven years ago in a car accident - and has been wheelchair-bound ever since.
He traveled to Oklahoma City today to try out a bionic suit that would allow him to walk - like wearing a robot.
But after a long evaluation, doctors say his joints and muscles aren't strong enough yet.
"Got some more work to do, got some homework to do. It's gonna be a lot of intense stretching - so a lot more pain to endure for awhile, but I'll be back," said Brandon Stone.
He says even if he has to wait years, that's nothing compared to the reward.
