CHICAGO (WLS) -- A Chicago police officer who was paralyzed from the waist down when he was shot in the back trying to break up a fight while off-duty is walking again.
Video posted on Officer Danny Golden's Facebook page shows him walking with the help of a walker and leg braces while in rehabilitation at Shirley Ryan Ability Lab-
Golden was off-duty and attempting to break up a fight in Beverly when he was shot in the back, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down.
"He's very upbeat. He's always got a smile on his face [and] he's looking forward to the next chapter in his life," said his father Patrick Golden last month.
Golden is expected to be released from the rehab facility later this week.
