Vestavia's snow-storm Samaritan Kelly Garner released from hospital, doesn't call himself a 'hero'
Kelly Garner, a Vestavia Hills resident, played the role of Good Samaritan during the snow storm that hammered Birmingham on Jan. 28. But that night, as he tried to walk home, he fell 40 feet into a ravine behind the Vestavia Library where he would spent the next 12 hours until being rescued the following morning. Garner talked about his experience just before his release today from the Spain Rehabilitation Center at UAB. He had spent two weeks in UAB Hospital and about nine days at Spain.
