An East Texas man and former KLTV employee is still recovering after he was brutally attacked in Honduras.

Joe French, a 27-year-old from Longview, was teaching high school English in Honduras when he was shot four times on his way back from his school's Christmas party. Family says it is a miracle that he even survived the attack.

In January, French's brother David Ortega said French was only able to move his right arm and leg, but was able to turn his head from left to right. He was trying to speak, but only his lips move.

Then on Tuesday, Ortega posted a video to YouTube showing the progress that French has made since he returned to Texas - and you can't miss it.
