Gaylord Benefit to Help Injured Teen

Posted: Updated:

The Gaylord community came together today to help a 15-year-old boy who broke his neck last August.

The benefit was to help Tyler English, who was injured after diving into Crooked Lake.

When he was first brought into the hospital he was paralyzed from the shoulders down.

Family and friends are hopeful, because he now has feeling in his arms and hands.

His family says he is making progress, but still in the ICU at Mott Children's Hospital.
