A Kentucky man might be the first quadriplegic ever to recover completely.

Patrick Rummerfield spent time this week at the Bowling Green Corvette plant. He installed hoods on his favorite car. It's a dream come true for him, since he's spent most of the last thirty-plus years unable to move.

Rummerfield was in a car accident in the 1970s. It left him paralyzed from the neck down. Then, about 17 years ago, while being put into a bed, his big toe moved. After 17 years of therapy, he is now able to move around.

He says it just proves you never know what tomorrow will bring.
