CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WTVD) -- Drew Pescaro, the 19-year-old injured during the shooting at UNC Charlotte, has taken his first steps toward recovery.

After nearly two weeks in the hospital, Pescaro took his first steps in the hospital without a walker.

The Apex native posted a video of the epic moment to his Twitter account on Monday.

"Update: Day 13, took my first steps without a walker today, so I felt the need to share it with everyone," the 19-year-old posted from the hospital.

In the video, he is seen taking small steps with an IV bag and hospital staff by his side.

According to his Twitter, he's undergone two surgeries since being admitted.
