A Philadelphia police officer shot and wounded in the line of duty three years ago made it back to work this week, marking a 993 day-long recovery.

Officer Ed Davies was shot by Eric Torres during a violent struggle in Philadelphia's 25th police district in August, 2013.

As a result of his injuries, Officer Davies lost a kidney and suffered a number of other physical maladies.

Torress would subsequently be convicted and sentenced to 60 years in prison.

Officer Davies posed with his son prior to returning to his job, holding a sign that read, "993 Days Later...First Day Back to Work."
