LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A deer hunting accident in November, 2015 nearly killed 68-year-old David Buller.

"We think that I went to get down from the treestand and either I passed out or I tripped and I fell," said Buller.

That fall was from about 12 feet, hitting limbs and metal, before slamming onto the ground.

Buller broke his neck, back, eight ribs, and part of his spine. He would spend months in a body cast and more months in recovery, regaining use of his upper body, but not his legs.
