Class reenacts graduation after classmate wakes from coma

It's an incredibly heartwarming act of thoughtfulness and friendship by a group of recent high school graduates.

Three weeks ago, the class of 2016 had their graduation ceremony at East Juniata High School in Central Pennsylvania. But one of them, Scott Dunn, was not there that day.

Scott was in a coma following a car crash a few days before.

When he woke up, he was devastated to have missed commencement, unaware that his friends had no intention of letting that happen.

So on Tuesday, three weeks after they already graduated, half of his class came back to have another graduation... for one.

He says, "I'm speechless, to know this many people are behind me."

Scott is now focused on just getting better. A big job made easier knowing he is truly surrounded by love.
