Less than one month after a near-fatal bike crash in France, Dalton’s Saul Raisin on Monday walked off an airplane — with assistance — at Atlanta’s Hartsfield/Jackson International Airport with his parents.

Raisin, who went into a coma two days after his crash in the Circuit de la Sarthe in western France and who was in a life-threatening condition for days, was admitted to The Shepherd Center in Atlanta where he will undergo tests over the next few days to determine his current condition.

“They arrived in Atlanta around lunch time (Monday) and went straight to the Shepherd Center,” said John Raisin, Saul’s uncle. “Saul insisted on walking off the plane and, with help, that’s what he did.

“I’ve talked to Jim and Yvonne (Saul’s parents) and they’re all just glad to be back in the United States.”

On Friday, Raisin’s parents posted what turned out to be their final message on their son’s Web site, expressing they felt he was strong enough to return soon.
