This New York Times story is amazing because of the technological revolution it describes:
On Dec. 14, 2007, Mr. Woo was paralyzed after an accident at a construction site at Goldman Sachs headquarters on West Street. Mr. Woo, an architect on the project, was struck as seven tons of metal studs, hoisted by a crane, crushed the trailer in which he was working.
The story’s been covered in other New York papers, too.
But what puzzles me is that no Canadian paper has picked up on the obvious Canadian angle:
As Mr. Woo has continued his rehabilitation in New York and consulted on projects for his firm, his wife has been living in Toronto, with their three boys, ages 4, 5 and 6. Mr. Woo said he was designing a home in Toronto — with elevators and upward slopes, but no stairs — that he expected the family to move into in the coming years. Perhaps, he said, he will be able to walk in.
Historic advance in medicine, with Canadians at the centre of it. Canadian media, where art thou?
