Friends, coworkers help paralyzed man

An event is taking place in the Summerside area that is evidence of the compassion and caring of Clermont countians.

Phillip Bryant of Summerside recently experienced a 24-foot fall that has left the 39-year-old as a quadriplegic.

In August of 2008, he was building a 1,100 square foot tree house in Adams County when, while up in the construction, he “leaned against a wall and fell and broke every bone in my neck, but one…It’s taken me nine months to get home.”
