Amazing medical miracles #3

This could possibly be one of the most bizarre medical miracles we’ve featured this week…

Imagine being confined to a wheelchair for twenty years after being involved in a motorcycle accident. For David Blancarte this was a reality. That was until nature came to his rescue. A brown recluse spider bit him and miraculously allowed him to walk again.


Well, the bite sent David to the hospital and then physical therapy. While he was in therapy, a nurse noticed a spasm in his leg and ran some tests. Five days later, he was walking. Coincidence? Possibly. But we like to believe

He didn’t manage to walk very far though: David was arrested shortly after his big first step, for an outstanding warrant.
