Veteran gifted with wheelchair at Tinley Park country concert

TINLEY PARK, Ill. (WLS) -- A local Marine Corps veteran was presented with an all-terrain tracked wheelchair at a country concert in Tinley Park Friday night.

Zmysly was injured in 2006. He had surgery after his most recent deployment. His family said there was a medical mistake and Zmysly was deprived of oxygen, leaving him permanently in a wheelchair.
