How did Steve Brown end up in a Wheelchair?

In April 2005 at the age of 23, Steve Brown fell from a first-floor balcony while working in Europe as an area manager for a holiday company in Germany. He recounts: “I tripped and fell from a first-floor balcony. I was looking up when I landed, so when my body stopped my head went back over my shoulders, like a severe whiplash. It snapped my neck, dislocating the C7 [one of the cervical vertebra, below the skull] and trapping my spinal cord.”

Steve was in intensive care in Germany for five weeks and once his condition stabilised was transferred to Stoke Mandeville hospital, where he learned the extent of his paralysis. “I knew it wasn’t about getting better; it was about rehabilitation and learning to live in a wheelchair. And that was the start of my new life.”
