A 14-year-old boy is recovering from a serious brain injury he received after he fell while riding a skateboard while hanging onto a car. This dangerous activity goes by the name of skitching.
Alex Hanson is recovering at Tampa General Hospital. He is a student at Charlotte High School. He was skitching at the 13000 block of Orchid Drive in Punta Gorda when he sustained the life threatening brain injury. He can now feed himself, speak a little, sit up and continues to improve.
