Darryl Perry revived from the brink of death

An Orlando man is working every day to "come back from the dead."

In 2007, former University of Florida football player Darryl Perry’s heart stopped for seven minutes. After doctors told his family to let him die, he woke up. Life was different though. He couldn’t see, could barely talk and for a while, Perry couldn’t talk.

Perry’s story became national news, and he’s continued to recover from the deadly medical episode.

The News Station checks in with Perry now to see how he’s doing.
