Is Charles Krauthammer Paralyzed from the Neck down?

Report as

Yes, Dr. Charles Krauthammer was paralyzed from the neck down, but the cause is still a topic of debate. Some say he became paralyzed as a result of a car accident, but most sources say he suffered a diving accident in 1972, while he was a freshman at Harvard Medical School.

Krauthammer is only paralyzed from the waist down. He has use of his hands and arms. I keep hearing both, from a car accident and diving into an empty pool. ???
He still persevered and followed his aspirations in life. A ver good role model. To bad he does not have more exposure, especially to high school students.

On a recent radio interview he very clearly stated it was a diving accident (shallow pool water) while he was a first year med student at Harvard.

Since seeing him driving a specialized car on the Bret Baier special last night I will say no he has use of his arms and hand but probably limited use you see him move his hands on Special Report but from the neck down was what Christopher Reeves suffered

I heard Charles became paralyzed when he threw himself down on a hand-grenade when he served his country.
