Young crash victim spent 3 weeks in a coma


SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - Among the 296 people on board United Flight 232, were small children. One was critically injured, and spent almost three weeks in a coma.

Jason Feyh was eight years old a the time. "Broken legs, broken collar bone, broken ribs," said Feyh.

Feyh spent six weeks hospitalized in Sioux City, and 19 days in a coma.

Moved by his story, a volunteer from the community came and read a martial arts story to him every day. "I told his grandfather I'd like to read him a story to see if i could help him get through this," said Roman Aguirre, Sioux City. "And, it all worked out because that's what he like."

Aguirre says that experience made him realize the importance of reading to children.

For several years now he's volunteered his time reading to elementary students in Sioux City.
