Need help with blown out highlights please

Hi.  I am not very good with Photoshop and need some help on how to fix the blown out highlight areas of this photo, please.  I've spent the past couple of hours trying to figure this out and have not found a good technique yet.  Any help will be most appreciated.

First brighten the shot up using an adjustment layer and then brush your highlights back to where they are now. the fact your shot looks so dark,makes the bright areas more noticeable. if they are totally blown in the original,you cant get detail where it does not exist, but making the overall image brighter visually should help in my opinion.
