Carolina Leid reports from Somers.

SOMERS, New York -- As Jonathan Daniels was heavily sedated and hooked to machine at Westchester Medical Center, his girlfriend Lindsay Baker kept telling him to fight...and he did.

"In the hospital it was really bad. My mom was telling me I was screaming at the top of my lungs. I don't remember pretty much a lot of my hospital stay. I was on some pretty heaving medicine," Daniels said.

The 25-year-old was riding his motorcycle with friends when a car cut him off and he went flying into a utility pole.

It happened a few months ago in Somers.

Daniels suffered spinal and rib injuries, collapsed lungs, and bleeding on the brain.

Miraculously he can walk.

He posted this video on Facebook and received an incredible response.

"I don't even have that many friends on Facebook and it took off. It's like 25 million views. Overnight it took off," Daniels said.

"It's incredible the support we have gotten from complete strangers wanting to send us positivity, and Blake, well that's just awesome," Baker said.

Baker and Daniels are huge fans of country music superstar Blake Shelton and were supposed to go to his concert but couldn't because of the accident.

Shelton sent them a video message offering them free tickets.

"Whatever show you decide to go to I definitely got to meet you," Shelton said.

Now they're trying to hammer out the details and are thrilled to see the star perform.

They are thankful for a second chance at a wonderful life together.
