Video: Possessed’s Jeff Becerra Walks for the First Time in 30 Years
Possessed frontman Jeff Becerra has been paralyzed from the waist down since 1989, when he was shot twice during a robbery attempt, including once in the spine. But after being confined to a wheelchair for over 30 years, Becerra recently took his first steps thank to the miracles of modern science.
Becerra posted footage of himself on the band’s TikTok walking down the hallway of a medical facility with the help of robotic legs, made by ReWalk Robotics, and a walking aid. The footage was taken from a bit too far away to see the expressions on Becerra’s face, but we’re betting it was all smiles and tears in the room as Becerra slowly moved himself forward.
Becerra reformed Possessed in 2007 and has been performing with the band sporadically ever since. They released a new album, Revelations of Oblivion, in 2019.
You can watch the video below. We wish Jeff continued strength on his walking adventure!
