(KMOX) – A paralyzed police officer has gotten a small part of his life back.
Mike Flamion and his wife, Sarah, moved into a new smart home which will allow him to live a much more normal life.
Flamion was paralyzed after being shot during a routine traffic stop in July while on duty with the Ballwin, Missouri Police Department .
The couple moved into their new home Tuessday and Sarah called the home “unbelievable.” Hundreds of supports were there to welcome them home.
Mike says his favorite part of the home is the back porch with its fireplace and large screen TV. He spent the night watching the Blues game by the fire.
The Gary Sinise Foundation, hundreds of volunteers and organizations helped build the home that allows Flamion to do the things most of us take for granted. Turing on lights, the TV, opening doors and more can all be controlled by a tablet or his voice.
It wasn’t the first time the Flamions had been inside, that came Monday. And on that day Flamion saw a big buck, right outside the laundry room window. He agreed it was a good omen from God, telling him that he was home.
