Ohio Teen Makes Miraculous Recovery After Brutal Beating

Marcus Bailey

(WTVG) – It’s been a long and painful seven months for 16-year-old Marcus Bailey after his life was drastically changed in December.

Marcus was walking along Main Street in Toledo at about 8 p.m. when a group of men got out of a vehicle and beat him with the bat he was carrying. Investigators said it was a random attack.

Marcus suffered damage to 80% of his brain as part of a traumatic brain injury.

After months of rehab, he can now walk with assistance from his mom and he’s showing other positive signs of recovery.

“Not only is he saying words, he’s saying sentences. He’s singing words to songs. He will sing a whole song,” said Shelley Bailey.

It’s a recovery no one expected. CONTINUE
