Video: Dendy Brown’s Remarkable Comeback

On Sept. 20, 2018, city employee Harold “Dendy” Brown was struck by a car while collecting a container on his solid waste route. Some 25 months after the accident, Dendy returned to work in the Solid Waste Division after enduring 11 surgeries.

The likelihood of an injured worker returning after a six-month absence is about 5 percent. Returning after two years is extremely rare.

This film tells the story of Dendy’s courageous comeback.
