Lascorz Severely Injured

Heard reports trickeling through that Joan Lascorz is paralyzed from the neck down. Hope its not true.


Here is the lastest "official" news clip I could find, it doesn't mention anything about him being paralyzed but some peopel on FB who are friends with him said he updated his personal account saying he was.

I modified the title Steve, at least until we hear for sure. This is the latest article I've found:

http://www.gpone.com/index.php/en/20...l-midollo.html

Reports are trickling out that it is indeed a very bad spinal injury...and I really pray it's not from the neck down. This is a horrible situation. Juan is such a seemingly good dude. I've always rooted for him...I'll continue to do so now. What a bummer.

So sad. What is even more frightening is that this could happen to anyone. We are fragile. Hope they can do something to at least get some function back.

Latest news is that it is still unclear until swelling subsides.

That is unbelievably good news, to hear that he's moving his arms at the very least. It's a start. Hoping for the best for Joan.

Good to see positive news on this, I've been looking all over for updates on his status but nothing has been out there for weeks.

Haven't heard anything on Joan until now. Looks like he's a paraplegic.

Really sad news.

Damn, that sucks. I was hoping no news was good news, but considering the potential alternative it could have been worse.
