CHICAGO (WLS) -- One mother is especially thankful that her son is alive to see Thanksgiving this year.
Dakotah Earley was critically injured in a Lincoln Park robbery back in May.
He was walking near Wayne and Webster Avenues when he was shot multiple times for his cell phone.
Earley has had several surgeries, and even lost part of his leg following the attack. But on Thursday, his family expressed gratitude.
Dakotah's mother said he's getting stronger every day, and should be walking around on his own in just a couple of weeks.
