    Miracle enables Paralympic athlete

    Dutch Paralympic athlete Monique van der-Vorst, who was unable to walk for nearly half her life, is now able to walk again thanks to an accident which led to this miracle
    A sprinting cyclist was attending a training session in Spain when he accidentally hit the 26-year-old Van der Vorst, who had abandoned her wheelchair. The accident sent spasms throughout her paralyzed legs and helped her get on her feet again.
    Her doctors have not been able to explain exactly what has happened.
    Van der Vorst won the World title in 2009 for the best hand cycle athlete. She also won 2 silver medals at the Paralympic Games in the Chinese capital, Beijing, two years ago

    This is the first time I have heard of something like this.

    Getting knocked back into being able to walk, that is amazing.

    I wonder if you can get $#@!ed back into being able to walk...

    Just had to throw that out there, you know, hypothetically.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I think this was made public more than a month ago. It was on the Dutch national news.
    She's a lucky girl, and a real fighter.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    That reminds me of this one:

    A guy's wife has been in a coma for several months, with no signs of recovery. The guy pleads with the doctors:
    "Isn't there anything you haven't tried...ANYTHING"?
    The doctors all confer, then reply: "Well sir, there is ONE thing...it's radical, but in this case, it truly is the last resort. Erm, sometimes, in extreme circumstances, oral sex can provide enough stimulation to stir the patient."

    The guy immediately says he's all for trying anything at this point, so they pull a tent around her for privacy and as he enters, they wish him luck.
    A few minutes later, the machine monitoring her vitals flatlines, and the ominous beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep is heard.

    The doctors rush in, only to see the man pulling up his trousers, as he says: "I think she choked!"

    I know, it's bad...but it's funny.

    Anyways, to the OP: cool article, amazing story!
