'I am just thankful I can do this': Minnesota farmer focused on making others happy

Posted: Updated:

A farmer in Lake Park, Minnesota is getting a lot of attention for how he dresses on the job.

Todd Bergman wears a different costume each day.

The 38-year-old started wearing the costumes three years ago as a way to cheer up his co-workers.

Todd has faced many obstacles in his life, but making people smile is not one of them.

"I am just thankful I can do this, the doctors said there is no hope, I am a walking miracle, I hate to brag, but that is the truth" said Bergman.

In 2001, a near fatal car crash near the Buffalo River changed everything.

"Five months, I was in a coma. It changed my life," said Bergman.

A head injury left him unable to do much of anything.

"I had to learn to walk and talk and all that. Yeah, yeah," said Bergman.

He went from hospitals, to nursing homes, to rehabilitation centers, to learning to live again.

"There is a reason God saved my life," he said.
