CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. —
A Cranberry Township police officer injured in the line of duty in February 2011, returned to work Wednesday after suffering injuries that could have left him paralyzed.
Cpl. Dan Hahn, who now walks with a cane, beat the odds when he returned to work Wednesday less than two years after falling 25 feet from a bridge on Interstate 79.
“It’s good to be back,” Hahn, who weighs 50 pounds less than when he was injured, said Wednesday. “My family and friends have gotten me through this.”
Hahn, who chose to come back to work instead of retiring, said he was chasing a suspect when the accident happened.
“I’m a better person, and more patient. I don’t take life for granted,” Hahn said.
Hahn’s wife, Fritz Hahn, said she’s glad her husband is getting back into a regular routine.
“He’s my rock and he’s my everything. I just love him,” Fritz Hahn said.
