The day 14-year-old Jordan Hogg was injured in a hayride accident, doctors weren't sure he'd live, and if he did, they predicted he'd have to endure a lengthy recovery period in the hospital.

But Jordan did live and left the hospital long before doctors expected. Monday, he got the chance to thank his rescuers personally in a tearful gathering in Hamburg Township, the Livingston Daily reports.

Jordan suffered serious injuries last Oct. 17 when he fell off the hayride trailer and it ran over him, the article said. The trailer crushed his airway, and one of his legs was wrapped around its axle.

At the Hamburg Township Fire Station Monday, Jordan and his mom, Amy Hogg, thanked the emergency responders who saved his life.

"My heart is so full, it feels so good to tell these people I'm thankful," Jordan told the Livingston Daily. "They saved me. You know, it's like they're brothers and sisters."
