Paralyzed Man Walks Again Due To Brown Recluse Spider Bite



David Blancarte lost the use of his legs nearly 21 years ago in a motorcycle accident. And now, thanks to the bite of brown recluse, he can walk again.I'm here for a spider bite. I didn't know I would end up walking," says David. A nurse noticed David's leg spasm and ran a test on him. "When they zapped my legs, I felt the current, I was like 'whoa' and I yelled," he says. He felt the current and the rush of a renewed sense of hope. "She says,'your nerves are alive. They're just asleep'," explained David.Five days later David was walking.David basks in his glory and gives a ray of hope to other hoping to walk again. The 48-year-old former boxer and dancer is taking it in stride, knowing his best days are still ahead.David's dream is to see his 14-year-old twin daughters grow up and get married so he can walk them down the aisle and have that first dance.

Uhhhhh, this is really wack to me.

A spider-bite gives you back your ability to walk?

I'm pretty much speechless by this story.

These are some (disgusting) pics I used to show to my students here on the HST classes (Security and Hygiene at Work), trying to make them see what happen when you don't pay attention on the places you are.
