Louisville Metro Police Officer’s Recovery “An Absolute Miracle”

(WHAS 11) — Marking a month since Louisville Metro Police officer Nickolas Wilt was injured while responding to a deadly mass shooting, the Louisville Metro Police Foundation shared an update on his “remarkable” progress.

A month after sustaining a critical brain injury, Wilt is currently being transferred to rehab. It comes a day after Wilt’s family announced he was officially off a ventilator.

To celebrate the progress, the Louisville Metro Police Foundation held a vigil at Southeast Christian Church Wednesday evening.

Sgt. James Talley called it “an absolute miracle.” “An injury like that to the head is just an incredible feat to overcome,” Jackie Talley, with Back the Blue Officer Relief, said. CONTINUE
