had returned and that doctors had given him only weeks to live.
 


While in his first year studying at Harvard Medical School, Charles
Krauthammer became permanently paralyzed from the neck down
after a diving board accident that severed his spinal cord. After 
spending 14 months recovering in a hospital, he returned to the
medical school, graduating as a psychiatrist.
