About the Incident
A 66-year-old man named Samuel Chifalo visited the emergency room of Pueblo’s Parkview Medical Center on Feb. 11, 2016, after he had fallen and bashed his face against furniture. After the hospital discharged him, he became paralyzed.
The most common causes for spinal cord injury are traumas such as falling from heights, violence, and sporting injuries; but they can also be caused by compression of the cord, tumors, infections, or inflammation.
Those who suspect that their spinal cord has been injured should contact a hospital immediately. If promptly treated, some spinal cord injuries can be reversed.
