Kylee and Family: A Special Thanksgiving

SOUTHLAKE, TX--Twelve-year-old Kylee Shea collapsed when walking to class. Thanks to the quick thinking of two coaches, she's alive today to celebrate Thanksgiving with her family.

Shea's heart stopped beating for three minutes. 

Now, holiday traditions for the Shea's will be forever changed: every moment seems like a miracle. It's something they're truely thankful for.

For nearly two days, family worked to prepare the Thanksgiving feast. It was complete with everything you'd expect: turkey, salad, stuffing, but the family meal was more than just a meal.

It was a celebration.

"This could have been a completely different thanksgiving," said Sheryl Shae.

"I remember walking to class, and feeling really tired, and trying to sit down, but falling over," said Kylee.

The whole thing caught on video. Kylee last remembers telling her friends to go on ahead.
