IF DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. WOULD HAVE SURVIVED
He would have been a quadriplegic. The assassin's bullet severed his spinal cord. Dr. King would have been confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life, paralyzed from the neck down with no movement in his arms or legs.
The doctor who treated him said, the wound was one of the most severe spinal wounds he had ever seen in his life.
