MIDLAND (AP) - A 10-year-old Midland boy who was left blind after an asthma attack cut off oxygen to his brain has regained the ability to walk and talk.

And Dante Hall's mother, Jenika, is holding out hope that her son's vision will also return.

Dante was stricken last June and remained unconscious for a month.

He went home in August and with help from physical therapists, learned to walk again.

Dante's mom says her son couldn't talk when he came home from the hospital, but now he won't stop talking.

Dante got homebound schooling this year but hopes to return to elementary school in the fall.
