Crossfit Athlete Kevin Ogar has had a freak accident whilst attempting a 'snatch', during the OC Throwdown.
The bar struck a pile of 45lb plates stacked behind the platform and bounced back and struck Kevin. It damaged his T11 and T12 vertebrae and severed his spinal cord.
He is paralysed from the waist down.
It gets worse, apparently he doesn't have health insurance. Yikes!
