Crandon Victim Speaks Out

The survivor of the Crandon shooting says he's learned a bitter truth about those wounded by gunfire. Recovery is tougher than most people could even understand.

Charlie Neitzel had his leg shattered in the shooting that happened October 7.

He's using a wheelchair but hoping he can walk again some day.

He says it's taking a tremendous amount of suffering and healing as he tries to get back to a normal life.

But Neitzel is getting strength from the kindness of strangers.

A church in Pickerel hosted a fundraiser to help with Neitzel's medical bills.

The money raised hasn't been counted yet, but organizers think it will be thousands of dollars.
