Family receives much-needed Thanksgiving gift

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A Carmel Mountain ranch family received a thanksgiving surprise Wednesday.

The group Passion 4 KIDS and County Supervisor Dave Roberts teamed up to donate a handicapped accessible van to the Takayanagi family. Eight-year-old Taisei Takayanagi can't speak or walk. He suffered a head injury when he was just 10 months old.

Taisei's dad says the van will make a world of difference when transporting his son to physical therapy and doctor's appointments.

The family says they've needed a handicapped-accessible vehicle for a while, but Ty Takayanagi lost his job of 20 years recently and the family just couldn't afford it.
