Description
In 2012, Marine captain Derek Herrera was shot and paralyzed from the chest down after leading a special operations task in Afghanistan during his third deployment. Doctors told him he most likely would never walk again. Determined to prove his diagnosis wrong, Herrera discovered ReWalk Robotics, a motorized external prosthetic skeleton that gives paraplegic individuals the chance to walk again. In this segment of "SoCal Connected," Jennifer Sabih interviews Herrera on how the device has impacted his life, and marvels at witnessing what was once thought impossible.
