Hunting Accident Injures Hayti Teen

SIOUX FALLS, SD - He's an All-American athlete who survived an incredible accident. And Thursday, a Hayti teenager will set out on the biggest challenge of his life.

Tyler Taschner was hunting two weeks ago when he was hit by a falling tree.
It damaged the Hamlin honor student's spine and shocked his family friends.

“I ducked down close to my knees. You could tell you're paralyzed at that point. I had my phone in my pocket. So I reached in for that and called my dad first. I didn't know what was happening,” Tyler said.

He has eight broken ribs. The tree also snapped his spine and stretched his spinal cord. After surgery Tyler has no feeling below his chest.
