Local boy wins the gold at Special Olympics
Friday, Aug. 14, 2015 — When he was born three months early weighing 18 ounces, David Scarborough was once given a zero-percent chance of surviving.
The now 15-year-old Susanville boy who has cerebral palsy, however, has defied all odds.
After multiple surgeries and being told he would probably never walk without assistance, Scarborough recently won a gold medal in the Individual Skill division at the Special Olympics in Reno.
His mother, Ronette Scarborough said seeing her son receiving the gold medal was very emotional.
