Video: Watch Charlie Davies’ journey from near fatal car accident

In 2009, American soccer player Charlie Davies was badly injured in a car accident that almost claimed his life.

Friday night, ESPN released a touching documentary on the New England Revolution player’s journey back from the crash, called “The Unrelenting Charlie Davies.”

In the film, Davies shares his riveting story about how the nearly deadly accident affected him. He also goes into detail on the effects of addiction, a rough childhood, and how all of it molded him into the person he is now

The 16 minute documentary explores all aspects of the tragic story, and features not just Davies, but his parents and peers as well, to truly convey the impact of the unfortunate event.

The newly released feature film, directed by Bryan Reisberg, is certainly worth a watch for any American Soccer fan, or anyone who enjoys a good comeback story in general.
