BALLWIN, Mo. — An officer who was shot in the line of duty last summer will receive his new smart home Tuesday morning.
Officer Mike Flamion, who was shot last July in Ballwin, was paralyzed from the neck down. While he began the process of recovery, the Ballwin community began construction of a house built specifically to cater his accessibility.
Beginning at 10 a.m. Tuesday, the Flamion family will formally be introduced to their new home, which will feature a slew of custom features, all mostly customizable through the use of an iPad. Also included in the house is a signed guitar by the rock band Breaking Benjamin.
The house broke ground in March. The project was led by The Gary Sinise Foundation, a charity program created by the CSI: NY actor which helps law enforcement and veteran families around the country.
