Bertie County Firefighter Could Go Home In Two Weeks

The Bertie County firefighter who lost his legs while on a rescue call is doing so well he is expected to go home in just a few weeks.

According to his wife, Timothy King started his road to recovery Wednesday with rehab. He's been at PCMH since the accident earlier this month.

She says nurses tell her this is the fastest recovery they've seen for this type of injury.

Now King's wife says they're working to get their home ready for his return. She says doctors told her it would be six months before he could return home, but now it could be as soon as two weeks.

On March 2, King lost his legs when a vehicle hit him while he helped another person involved in an accident in Colerain in Bertie County.
