Freak Accident Paralyzes Teen, Then Mom Records Her Surprising Favorite Nurse By Walking

Lindsey is from Florida and has worked in online and print media. Her happy place is Michaels craft store.

In early spring of 2015, 17-year-old Bailey Murrill was playing with her dad when things quickly went wrong. Bailey fell off him and straight onto her back, leaving her paralyzed.

“He had me over his shoulder, and we were just horse playing,” Bailey says in the video below. “And I slipped somehow and landed on my back. I had no feeling in my legs from the hips down.”

The paralyzed teen spent almost two weeks in the hospital, and doctors told her and her family that she only had a 5% chance of ever walking again. Despite the grim outlook, Bailey persevered and kept at her physical therapy.

After 11 long days, the feeling started to return to her legs. In a clip below, the paralyzed teen sits on a bed, and with only a little help from a nurse, she stands up on her own.

When she was finally able to walk again, Bailey had one more thing to do: surprise her favorite nurse!

Bailey’s mom recorded as her daughter rolled up in a wheel chair to the nurse. In the clip, she stands up and the nurse starts screaming! “I stood up and got the biggest hug of my life,” Bailey says about the moment.

“Her reaction was just, it was beautiful!” Bailey’s mom says.

Not only was the former paralyzed teen able to celebrate walking, she also attended her senior prom, something that had seemed so far out of reach weeks earlier.
