Paralyzed Girl Will Walk With Help of Superman's Dr.
By H. Wicai, KWMU
The actor Christopher Reeve, best known for his portrayal of Superman, made international headlines in September. Eight years after a paralyzing accident, the actor can now feel light touch and partially move his hands and feet. If anyone could make that kind of recovery - Superman could. But the St. Louis doctor working with the actor is also helping a five-year-old little girl from Illinois. Born paralyzed, Jessica Hill is a Supergirl herself. KWMU's Hillary Wicai reports she'll likely walk - all on her own - very soon.
