MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The family of a high school student paralyzed after being hit in a hockey game says he has crawled with the help of therapists.
Jack Jablonski's family posted video from last week's session on his CaringBridge website, the Star Tribune reported (http://bit.ly/Q8sq2g). They say he crawled with the help of three therapists at a rehabilitation center in Golden Valley. Jack's mother, Leslie, wrote that her son moved his legs and crawled three times back and forth on a mat.
Jack, a student at Benilde St. Margaret's in St. Louis Park, was paralyzed in late December during a junior varsity hockey game. Doctors said he wouldn't walk again.
In late May, Jack told Twitter followers he had slightly moved his left leg, ankle and finger.
