MIAMI (AP) - A Florida man who survived his brother-in-law's Thanksgiving Day shooting attack is now sharing his story.

Patrick Knight nearly died in the shootout in Jupiter last November. His wife and three other family members were killed.

Now, the 37-year-old Miami attorney is giving motivational talks about his struggle.

He was in a coma for three months after the shooting and when he awoke, he had to learn to do nearly everything all over again, from brushing his teeth to walking.

Still, Knight tells The Palm Beach Post he sometimes surprises himself with how upbeat he is.
