CHICO, Calif. -

The Shasta College football player that was nearly killed on Halloween weekend in Chico is now walking.

21-year-old Tyler Burton was cold-cocked the night of October 27, 2012. Burton fell, hit his head on the ground, and suffered a stroke and severe brain injuries.

The incident has paralyzed the left side of his body.

At one point, Burton's family was even looking into donating his organs.

But according to the "Praying for Tyler Burton" Facebook page, Tyler is back in his room, exercising, and even walking.
