CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (KXAN) — A video showing a Corpus Christi teen’s ability to forgive has gone viral.
The 17-year-old was hit by a car that sped off. He broke his spine, cracked his skull, and was in a coma for weeks after the crash in 2013.
Despite his severe injuries, the teen forgave the man who hit him and fled. Christian Carillo hugged Eric Acevedo and told him he forgave him for hitting him and driving away.
Acevedo was sentenced to five years in prison and has to pay a $10,000 fine.
