KANSAS CITY, Missouri (KSHB) - A week after his rescue from horrific conditions made headlines, a Kansas City teen says life is looking up.

It was neighbor Crystal Anderson who called authorities and led police to a home where they found a 17-year-old handcuffed to a steel pole in the basement.

Tuesday, prosecutors charged his father and step-mother, David and Pamela Martin with one count each of felonious restraint and abuse of a child.

David told police he had run out of options, no longer able to afford his son's medication for Bipolar disorder.
