High schooler trampled by classmates regained feeling in legs

OWENSBORO, KY (WAVE) – An Owensboro high school sophomore, who was trampled by fellow classmates, is in better condition at her home.

Taylor Smith, a student at Apollo High School, was trampled as students rushed the basketball floor after a game winning shot March 6.

10 days later, she said she is still in some pain but the feeling has returned to her legs and she is able to walk again, "It's amazing. I'm so glad I can. I couldn't just cry all the time. I know my friends were there for me."
