University Student Left Paralyzed From The Waist Down After Suffering This Horrific Tragedy (Photos)

According to The Sun UK, a medic was left paralysed from the waist down after falling 30ft from an indoor climbing wall.

Doctors worked on him for four-hours after the horror plunge but three days later Ross Smith still couldn't feel his legs.


The 20-year-old was told he would never walk again after falling during his weekly Newcastle University mountaineering club meeting in November last year.

The student has vowed to continue studying to become a doctor - his friends and family have rallied around to raise money to help him achieve his dream.

A statement on the Just Giving Page says: "After spending Christmas and New Year in hospital, Ross now hopes to be discharged home to Bolton within the coming weeks.

"Despite the prognosis, Ross has never once shown any signs of anger or self-pity. "He is determined to continue with his medical studies next September and to achieve his long-term goals.

"His family, friends and former colleagues and schoolmates are incredibly proud of him and want to help make life as good as it can possibly be." 

Ross told the Metro: "The attitude I’ve always had is that it’s happened now and there’s nothing I can do to change it.

‘I’ve always been a positive person and I know that no amount of moping about and feeling sorry for myself is going to change anything."

His family are hoping to raise £50,000 to install an improved stair lift and adapt their home better.

His mum said: "Ross has given me so many occasions to be proud of him over the years, but none more so than in his attitude to this life-changing injury.

"His positivity and strength of character have shone through - he is a truly amazing young man." So far more than £16,000 has been raised through the campaign.
