Nick Tullier's family never stopped dreaming of the day the East Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Sheriff's deputy would emerge from a coma. That day finally arrived.
"People have asked us a number of times, 'Is Nick a miracle?'" said James Tullier, Nick's father, as he grinned.
"To us, yes. Nick's a miracle."
Since July 17, when he was shot in the head and abdomen after answering a call to take down an active shooter who was targeting officers, the family of Nick Tullier hasn't left his side.
Tullier spent four months in a coma and has spent the last month going through intense rehabilitation at TIRR Memorial Hermann in Houston. His parents and fiancée have been working with him on an extremely difficult, yet astounding recovery.
