Vinny Pinello’s life back on track after repairs made to stolen wheelchair

Vinny Pinello's life is back on track now that his stolen wheelchair has been returned and repaired.



Pinello's motorized wheelchair was found in June after being stolen from his Flower Hill home.



For several weeks, Pinello had to be pushed around in his uncomfortable backup chair. His chair was severely damaged when it was stolen. Both arms were broken off, along with the control arm that holds the joystick.



Pinello is back attending classes at United Cerebral Palsy in Roosevelt now that he has his old chair back and running.
