Thread: How did you become paralyzed?

  1. #91
    This is not the story of my spinal injury but I saw it on the news today and thought it was tragic:

    The 23-year-old damaged his spinal cord doing a somersault after scoring an equaliser for Bethlehem Vengthlang FC against Chanmari West FC.
    Biaksangzuala was taken to hospital and had surgery, but passed away.

    It is tragic. I got my SCI doing a somersault on a trampoline in high school gym class.

    I was cutting a roof vent out in 12,000 square foot old roller Rink building. The building imploded on top of me. The building had a major snow load on the roof and I never looked at the weight factor. A really big mistake. I am Blessed to be alive. Made it out as a T-10 complete. This injury definitely changed my life. After seven years I still miss my old life but keep plugging along . A Sci life is always and effort, but I still make the best of it. Best to all!
