Ronald Poppo, Miami Zombie Victim, Releases Video Message

It's been almost exactly a year since Ronald Poppo literally had his face eating off near the MacArthur Causeway in Downtown Miami. Since then doctors at Jackson Health System have done their best to reconstruct Poppo's face and get him back to health. Poppo has now released a video in which he plays a bit of guitar and then thanks the community for their support.
