IN: Paralyzed deer hunter chooses to end life support

November 5, 2013

From XFinity.Comcast.net

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Tim Bowers was badly hurt Saturday in a hunting accident, doctors said he would be paralyzed and could be on a ventilator for life. His family had a unique request: Could he be brought out of sedation to hear his prognosis and decide what he wanted to do?
 
Doctors said yes, and Bowers chose to take no extra measures to stay alive.
He died Sunday, hours after his breathing tube was removed.
 
The 32-year-old was deer hunting when he fell 16 feet from a tree and suffered a severe spinal injury that paralyzed him from the shoulders down.
Doctors thought he might never breathe on his own again.
 
His C3, C4 and C5 vertebrae were crushed.
