MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
"I am a walking miracle," Montgomery resident Anthony Sellers said.
Easter Sunday was 40-year-old Anthony Seller's last day walking out of Fresh Anointing House of Worship in Montgomery, literally.
After Sunday dinner, he went for a ride on Troy Highway and had a near-death experience.
"The police and paramedics was even amazed that I was still alive. I thought I was dead," Sellers said.
A traumatic motorcycle crash April 8th he says turned his life upside down.
Sellers says a van pulled out in front of him and he lost control, slamming into the rear of the van.
"Totally demolished the motorcycle. They didn't expect me to walk," Sellers said.
Sellers was airlifted to UAB Hospital. He stayed there until April 28th.
"The bone was sticking out of this arm where I can actually see it. My pelvic actually broke in half so I have a plate across it and screws and it's only been three months," Sellers said.
His wife by his side, six surgeries later.
"I was very shaken up, but I learned how to pray. When you know God is in the middle of it, that's a great feeling to. That's where the vows for better or for worse, through sickness and health kick in," Montgomery resident Jada Sellers said.
After he left UAB, Sellers was completely bedridden at home.
"I hadn't did any walking since the accident. My wife had to change me because I didn't even get up to use the bathroom." Sellers said.
But last Wednesday, Sellers says he defied all odds and stood up and walked without physical therapy or even a walker.
"I walked out the ambulance Wednesday when they brought me back from Birmingham and I've been walking ever since. I actually got off the stretcher and walked into my house," Sellers said.
And this third Sunday of July was the first time Sellers returned to the church where he last walked.
"Prayer and God, that's the only way I can explain it. I really don't know myself," Sellers said.
His church family and pastor watched in awe this man who has a new outlook on life.
"God has been so wonderful in that area," Sellers said.
Eight weeks of physical therapy is supposed to start Monday, but it's clear, Sellers won't need the whole time, as rebuilds his life as walking miracle and walking testimony.
Sellers is a father of five and a long-haul truck driver by trade. He says he's unsure at this time when he will return to work.
