Hanover teen returning home just in time for the holidays

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - December 21 is a big day for the Hanover teenager injured in a terrible accident.

Cole Sydnor is coming home, just in time for the holidays.

He was paralyzed from the chest down after a freak accident this summer in the James River and has spent the last few months in rehab facility in Atlanta.

Friends and family plan to welcome him home Wednesday at 3:30 at the Atlee High School football field.

They say they'll move to the school's auditorium if it rains.
