“Being immobilized is not the same as being dead,” Tsai Pin-chieh (蔡品捷) said on
Saturday, discussing his plans to return to Hualien County’s Sincheng Junior High School on Tuesday next week to attend its graduation ceremony.
The 15-year-old was forced to give up normal school activities after he was left a quadriplegic by an accident last year.
Tsai, who is from Kangle Village (康樂) in Sincheng Township (新城), was injured after diving into the Sanchan River (三棧溪).
Since his accident, Tsai said he has been confined to a bed and his teachers have taken turns visiting him and helping him with his lessons. [FULL STORY]
