MILWAUKEE - A Florida teen seriously injured after falling 100 feet from an amusement park ride near Wisconsin Dells is on the road to recovery.
Three years ago, Teagan Marti was seriously injured when nets and air bags that were supposed to catch her were not raised. Marti suffered spine, pelvis and internal injuries. Marti is from Florida, but she was spending her spring break in Wisconsin.
Marti was hospitalized in both Wisconsin and Florida. Since the accident, she wanted the help from a therapy dog.
With the help of celebrity - Charlie Sheen - Marti is able to have a Companion Assistance Dog.
Marti traveled more than 1,000 miles, along with her mom Julie to be in Milwaukee to meet those making her dream of having a therapy dog come true.
"When you look on paper at the injuries that she had that expected her to ever walk again... and so this is truly a miracle," Lynne Sears with American Family Children's Hospital said.
Thursday was the first time Teagan met her new Companion Assistance Dog, a dog that is supposed to make life a little bit easier.
"Such as opening and closing doors, picking up things that Teagan may drop." Jake Guell, Charlie's trainer said.
Teagan is able to walk with the help of a walker but Charlie would soon be her crutch to lean on.
"She'll also be a support dog for her as well. She'll wear a special harness and Teagan will be able to use her as a support as she's walking." Guell said.
Guell is one of many who have given either time or donations but the man who made it all possible, Charlie Sheen.
"And I wish Charlie could be here because him making this possible was just amazing," Julie Marti said.
"I was really happy to just have a friend to help me out." Teagan Marti said.
Guell was also able to start a non-profit called, Tails for Life. To learn more click here.
