NYPD detective dragged by vehicle released from rehab

NYPD detective dragged by vehicle released from rehab”

Detective Veve received a promotion while still healing in the hospital.

Veve was among officers responding to 911 calls of shots being fired in East Flatbush, Brooklyn in June.

An NYPD officer dragged down a Brooklyn street by a stolen vehicle almost a year ago while responding to reports of shots fired will be released from rehab on Monday, police said.

Detective Dalsh Veve, 36, suffered severe brain damage after he was dragged several blocks when a teenager driving a stolen auto hit the gas.

"His story is exemplary of so many who have joined the NYPD: an immigrant child who believed he could be something great", Mayor de Blasio said past year. "He believed he could make his family proud, believed he could be an example to his community".

Dr. Neil Jasey said that when Veve first came to Kessler several months ago he was in a "vegetative state" but now he can talk, eat, and walk with a rolling walker. Veve is married and has a 3-year-old daughter.

In a video of his release that was shared online Monday, Veve was escorted out in a wheelchair.

"This is a positive step in Dalsh's progress", Police Commissioner James O'Neill said during a press conference. Neighbors, friends and officers describe a "remarkable man". "I mean, that's the nature of who he is".
