    Indiana Hunter decides his fate

Doctors thought he might never breathe on his own again. Confronted with that prognosis, Bowers' family made an unusual request of doctors at Fort Wayne's Lutheran Hospital: Could Bowers be brought out of sedation and told of his condition so he could decide for himself whether he wanted to live or die?

    Just tears you to pieces. Don't know if I could've made a decision. But I thought I'd share because I've never heard of a story like this one. And hopefully, I won't have to hear anymore like this one. Just thought that was wild.

    Paralyzed from the neck down, can't even breath for myself? Hm, I choose death, easy.
    Initially everyone would be sad but in all honesty, you living would only prevent real happiness, the wife could remarry, the kids would honestly be better off without a dad than one that only detracts from their life experience.
