How did Charles Krauthammer become paralyzed?

Answer

Charles Krauthammer became paralyzed when his spinal cord was severed when he hit the bottom of a swimming pool after a dive. He was 22 years old and a student at Harvard at the time of the accident.

Charles Krauthammer is a syndicated political columnist. His weekly syndicated column is published in more than 400 newspapers around the world and won him the Pulitzer Prize in 1987.

Krauthammer was born in New York City in 1950, but moved to Montreal, Canada when he was a child, where he grew up and attended McGill University. Later, he attended Harvard Medical School in Boston, where his injury occurred, leaving him hospitalized for 14 months. Despite his life-altering accident, he continued his studies. He graduated from Harvard with a medical degree and became a psychiatrist.

Krauthammer eventually went to Washington to become a director of psychiatric research at the National Institute of Mental Health. While in Washington, he became a speech writer for Vice President Walter Mondale during the 1980 presidential election. After the election, he became a full-time editor for "The New Republic," which began his career in political journalism.

In addition to being a prize-winning columnist, Krauthammer is also a regular contributor for FOX News, a contributor to the magazine "The Weekly Standard," and the author of the book "Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes and Politics."
