Brian Boyle on the Ellen Show

An inspiring story on the Ellen Degeneres show today. Brian Boyle was in a horrible car accident, died 8 times, and was in a coma. He went on to come out of the coma after many operations, etc., to go back to his love of swiming and even entered in an Iron Man competion. He credits his recovery to Ellen Degeneres! When he was in the hospital (even when he was in a coma) he could hear the Ellen Degeneres show on TV. And it inspired him to get better. Once he was out of the coma he continued to watch the show and even when he couldn't talk, the nurses knew to keep the show on or turn it up, etc. because he would "blink" that's what he wanted. Ellen's funny show helped him to make a full recovery! Like he said I guess "Laughter is the Best Medicine!"

I couldn't find the clip of him on Ellen since it was just on today. But here is a video I found that shows exactly what happened to him and what he went through.
