Rock and roller finds new purpose

1280508CHICAGO (WBBM) — For 39-year-old George Flores, harps are his life.

“I’m not the guy that plays the instrument, but I am the person that makes sure that instrument performs,” Flores said.

But it wasn’t always that way. He was a hardcore rock and roller with plenty of energy to spare, until a fateful night 5 years ago, when he was paralyzed in a motorcycle accident.

“I ended up in four feet of swamp grass laying there bleeding and dying with a spinal cord injury.”

It took Flores two years to get out of bed and realized he needed to learn how to live his life differently.
