Lacrosse Player Making Strides After Traumatic Brain Injury

(FOX9) – A metro area standout lacrosse player has made incredible strides in his recovery from a traumatic brain injury.

On April 15, Noah Berger was critically injured when he was struck by a car near his Missouri university campus. He would spend more than three weeks in a medically induced coma before waking up. His parents and medical team report his progress since, has been amazing.

“I gotta learn how I get my shoulders back and kind of like re-walk because I was asleep for three-and-a-half weeks,” Berger told FOX 9’s Paul Blume during a video Zoom interview Friday. “And now my muscles are all screwed up and stuff. So, walking kind of causes a little bit of pain.” CONTINUE
