"Don't get into stolen cars. Say no," says Enijah Lamb, 15, of Detroit.

The teen suffered a brain injury and other serious injuries when the stolen car he was riding in with four other teenagers slammed into a tree. Two 15 year olds, his cousin and his best friend, died in the crash. One other teenager survived. Police say the car was going about 100 miles an hour on the 5400 block of Holcomb when the driver lost control. The car burst into flames.

"How's it feel to be home?" we asked. "Good," Enijah answered. "What did you miss the most about being away?" "My family," he replied.

Doctors kept Lamb in a medically induced coma for 6 weeks after the crash. He's still unable to walk on his own.

"Only thing they said, they don't know how he's gonna end up. Is he going to wake up? Is his brain going to come back to normal? Is he going to walk?" said Enijah's mother.  "I pray to God every day every day that he is gonna come through this."

Enijah's stop home was only a visit. He'll head to a group home for more rehab and to learn how to walk again. Family members say it could be six more months before he's able to return home for good.
