CLEVELAND — Brock Mealer, an Ohio man who learned to walk again after he was paralyzed in a car crash, spoke on the final night of the Republican National Convention.
Mealer, from Wauseon, Ohio, was given a 1 percent chance to walk after a 2007 car crash that killed his dad.
"But that 1 percent was all I needed."
Mealer talked about how last year, CNN reported that Donald Trump had a 1 percent chance of being named the Republican presidential nominee.
"I defied the odds, but I didn't do it alone. Donald Trump can't do it alone either."
His brother also was hurt in the crash but went on to play football at Michigan; Mealer did his rehab at that university's hospital and with the football program's strength and conditioning coaches. He's now able to walk unassisted.
