After Accident Left Him Paralyzed, ER Doctor Adjusts To Life In A Wheelchair21:41


Last year, a mountain bike accident left Daniel Grossman paralyzed from the waist down. Five months later, he was back at work as an ER doctor at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota — after relearning how to do his job and live his life. "Option A is, 'You are paralyzed, what are you going to do about it?' Option B is, 'You are paralyzed. Let's sit and wallow in self-pity.' I decided for option A, and honestly I think most people do decide for option A," Grossman tells Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson.
