Swimmer Walks Again After Injuring Spinal Cord

By Kelley Luckstein

Last October, 26 year-old swimmer Michael Moulton was diagnosed a C-6 quadriplegic after a diving accident at Ray’s Beach.  For months he was only able to move his shoulders and biceps. But, he takes us back to the day the accident happened and how miracles can come true… "We got an emergent MRI which shows right there, you can see the fragment of bone going back into where his spinal cord is,” said Dr. Jonathan Bledsoe, Neurosurgeon, Mayo Clinic Health System. Dr. Bledsoe a Neurosurgeon at Mayo Clinic Health System says during the dive Michael injured his spine, leaving him motionless from his shoulders down.
