A life forever altered: A Vermillion man is literally trying to get back on his feet
While working Monday, May 21, in Farmington, Mike Frandrup felt a burning sensation in his leg.
Less than 48 hours later, he was enduring seven hours of surgery to his spine. When he woke up, he was paralyzed from the waist down and life hasn't been the same since.
It turns out a few veins in his spinal column had burst and bled. Doctors went in and did what they could, but they've given him just a zero to five percent chance of walking again.
