CLEMENTON, N.J. - A New Jersey family is counting their blessings after the youngest of their three children almost didn’t survive a horrific car accident.
He was in a coma and, for a while, it was day-to-day."Of all the days that there could be, this is probably one of the best days ever," Donna Lewis said. "I was very emotional."Andrew Lewis’s parents say his graduation from Shawnee High School in June was anything but guaranteed.
Six months earlier, the teen was in a terrible car crash that left him unconscious with a traumatic brain injury."About 90 percent of people that have that injury don’t wake up, ever.
Other people who do wake up, most of them have long-term, ongoing issues," dad Ryk Lewis said.Andrew was driving along College Drive, not too far from his home in Clementon, in Camden County, around 4 in the afternoon, on New Year’s Eve.
