HAVEN, Kan. (AP) A Kansas teenager who is recovering in Denver after being paralyzed in a farm accident was able to wander through the halls of his high school with the help of a special robot.
Sixteen-year-old Kolton Kincaid used a Segway-type robot that he was controlling from Denver Tuesday to visit with friends and teachers. His classmates could see him and talk to him through the robot's iPad.
Kolton used a robot that belongs to the Educational Services and Staff Development Association of Central Kansas, based in Hutchinson, to make the surprise visit.
Kolton was paralyzed from the waist down in the accident in November near Langdon. The Hutchinson News reports his dad, Kory Kincaid, says Kolton is improving and plans to return home in January.
