A Sheriff’s Master Deputy previously left unable to walk after a serious injury recovered and walked his daughter down the aisle at her wedding, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO).

OCSO Master Deputy Harold ‘Hal’ Davis was injured while working in his yard outside his home. Although the recovery process is still ongoing, walking his daughter Hannah down the aisle represents significant progress for Master Deputy Davis a year on from incident, the OCSO wrote in a statement posted to Facebook.

The incident occurred when Master Deputy Davis was struck by a tree limb. He suffered spinal damage and remained paralyzed across his entire body for a period of two weeks, according to Fox 35. (RELATED: Gen Z Congressman Claims Looking At Mugshot Is ‘Incredibly Triggering’)

Progress came as he began to regain a degree of control over movement in his toes. A year of intensive rehabilitation therapy allowed Master Deputy Davis to make further gains in his recovery process, the outlet reported.

Throughout his recovery process, walking Hannah down the aisle at her wedding remained a guiding goal for Master Deputy Davis, the OCSO wrote in the statement. “We are so happy for Hal and his entire family,” the office concluded.
