(WXYZ) - Four months after being beaten by a mob of people on Detroit's east side, Steve Utash is back at work as a tree trimmer.
He was attacked last April after he accidentally hit a boy with his pick-up truck who darted out into the street.
For the first time, we're hearing from Utash in a letter to the public posted on his gofundme page.
Here's a link to his letter: http://www.gofundme.com/81r9sk
In it, he gives a special thank you to Deborah Hughes, the retired nurse who helped save his life.
She rushed to help him when she saw Utash getting attacked.
She says it's great to see the special thank you from Utash.
"It makes me feel good," she says.
Hughes says Utash first called her last month.
