About 100,000 Minnesotans are living with a disability caused by a brain injury. One of them is 6-year-old Andre Robinson from St. Joseph.

Andre's life almost ended 19 days after it began.

"They didn't think that he would make it through the night," said Andre's mother, Kim Notsch.

Six years ago, Andre's dad was walking down the stairs and slipped. "Andre flew out of his arms," Notsch said.

He fell 13 feet to the ground. The fall left Andre with two fractures in his tiny skull, severe bleeding and swelling. Six years later his left arm and leg are weak, but his injury hasn't stopped him. Click here to read the full story.

David King with the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance stopped by our KSTP-TV studio to talk about brain injuries in children.
