Prayer service for student injured in Vienna propeller accident

Posted: Updated:
POLAND, Ohio -

A prayer service was held Saturday for a young man from Poland who was severely injured in a propeller accident back in March. 

Zachary Norris, 20, was working with another student on an aircraft engine at the Pittsburgh Aeronautics Institute in Vienna when the engine kicked on and struck him in the head.

A pastor at Holy Family Church told 21 News that according to his family, Zach is making progress.

"The response from people this evening at Holy Family for Zach Norris and his family is remarkable, and we rely on God in prayer, good times and bad, trying times, and we're hoping for a full recovery for Zach," said Pastor Bill Connell.

Zach has had a few surgeries since the accident, and although he is still in the ICU, he should be in rehab in the next few weeks.
