(MUD LAKE, ID) – Residents in the small town of Mud Lake are rallying behind one of their own. Local News 8 reports that Chris Caudle was paralyzed from the neck down following a car accident seven years ago. His family hopes to purchase an Ekso-Bionic suit to help him walk again, and with a $110,000 price tag, it’s a dream they hope can be achieved with the help of their neighbors and other community members. Several Mud Lake businesses are helping raise money through customer donations, and state Sen. Jeff Siddoway has even donated a bull elk hunt on his ranch.
