UK fan badly injured in fall at Rupp Arena recovering from hospital

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A man badly injured in a fall at Rupp Arena continues to recover.

In a Facebook post, the family of Dickie Gregory, 73, says he is showing signs of progress.

Doctors say Gregory is paralyzed from the neck down. He's being treated at UK Hospital.

Family members say Gregory fell during the exhibition game between UK and Transylvania earlier this month while trying to break his wife's fall.

Directly after the fall, Coach Cal and his basketball team visited Gregory in his hospital room.
