His family was flown to a military hospital in Germany to say goodbye, doctors were convinced that he would not pull through. He did. Doctors were convinced he would never live outside a skilled nursing facility. He does. And today, John take another step toward recovery and independence.

After being released from the hospital, John came home to Western New York. He still suffers from severe memory loss, so he needs round-the-clock assistance. He has been living with his parents in their Town of Boston home.

Man Tries To Rob Eden Bank; Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction

EDEN, N.Y. (WGRZ) -- Eden Police continue their search for a would-be bank robber who tried to hold up the HSBC on South Main Street, but who instead suffered a wardrobe malfunction.

The man walked into the branch just after 1 p.m. Wednesday. Police say he brought along a dust mask to try to conceal his identity; however, he left it around his neck, apparently forgetting to pull the mask over his face.

While handing the teller a demand note, the suspect's cell phone rang. Surveillance video shows the suspect startled by something. He then grabbed the note and ran out of the bank.

Police believe the mystery caller may have been a get-away driver informing the suspect that he forgot to cover his face with the mask. Officers say the driver may have also tipped off the suspect that the Eden police station sits just feet from the bank.
