Twenty-year-old Kerrigan Davis stood up for the first time after her surgery. Her mother sent us a photo from the hospital Monday.
Davis shattered part of her spine when she hit the water after leaping into the lake from a 70-foot cliff in Niquette Bay State Park. She shared her story with WCAX to warn others about the dangers.
Her mom says there is still a long recovery road ahead but that Kerrigan is ready to take some steps.
