Impairment
In 2004 he fell from a ladder while he was in London, England. The accident caused paralysis in his lower extremities, and he required a screw to stabilise his spine. Doctors later found that bone fragments were interfering with the screw, and that it was possible he could become completely paralysed. Another operation resolved the problem and he regained some sensation in his legs. (zivot.azet.sk, 2010)
