Electrical shock victim's condition improves

Posted: Updated:

SHARPSVILLE, Pa. - UPMC Pittsburgh hospital officials have upgraded the condition of an 18 year old former  Sharpsville athlete to fair.

Tyler Luchey has been hospitalized since the weekend after receiving an electrical shock that knocked him from a 30-foot high  roof.  

Around 10:30 Thursday night, Luchey's girlfriend Brooke posted updated new information on Facebook:

"God is amazing. They took out the breathing tube so now he is breathing on his own. He is taken off sedation and there trying to wake him up. As I was in there he was moving his arms and legs around and that is so amazing. He was also coughing which the nurse said is so great! Hopefully he will be awake very soon. Keep the prayers coming he has a long road ahead of him. Please keep on praying for Tyler and his friends and family."
