DENVER -- A Colorado State Patrol trooper just celebrated his "alive day," when he went through a near-death experience while on duty two years ago.

Trooper Bellamann Hee was hit as he tried to stop a carjacker who led police on a wild chase through five counties during the morning rush hour. People watched live as SkyFOX followed the suspect throughout the chase on March 12, 2014.

Hee has recovered to the point where he was just recently able to return to his job and the roads. We got a chance to ride along with him and saw the dangers he faces every day.

His leg was shattered below the knee when the vehicle hit him that morning. He's still working to get back to being able to play the sports that he loves.

Deborah Takahara has his survival story and what went through his mind the moment he was hit. The driver who hit Hee, Ryan Stone, was sentenced to 160 years in prison.
