BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Aaron Paddock is walking and talking and smiling in his bed at Women & Children's Hospital, despite doctors telling his family that the 14-year-old may never walk or talk again.

Aaron, an eighth-grader at Warsaw Middle School, was helping his siblings trim trees in the family's backyard last month when a tree limb fell on his head.

Aaron was in a coma for two weeks and doctors feared the worst.

Last week, he woke up.
