The father of Tyler Rauch, 21, tells NewsChannel 15 his son is making a great recovery after his left leg was trapped in a lumber machine for two hours, earlier this week.
Workers at Charles Ingram Lumber Company near Pamplico called 911 after Rauch's leg got stuck in a machine used to cut lumber, Tuesday morning.
Rauch's father says his son suffered a broken leg and calls his recovery amazing considering surgeons feared they would have to amputate the leg.
Rauch moved from the hospital trauma unit to a regular room, Thursday morning.
He's expected to be released in the next week or so, but his father says he still has to undergo extensive therapy.
