Injured Indiana hunter chooses to end life support
JENI O'MALLEY, AP
DIDNT KNOW WHETHER TO PUT IN NEWS OR HUNTING.


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Tim Bowers loved the outdoors. Hunting gave him the quiet time during which he could reflect on a busy life that included a new wife, a successful business and a baby on the way.

The Indiana man was enjoying that time while hunting for deer Saturday when he fell 16 feet from a tree and suffered a severe spinal injury that paralyzed him from the shoulders down. 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? http://xfinity.comcast.net/articles/news..._s-Choice/

I feel bad for him but glad he could take the burden of deciding off of his family. No reason to force people to stay alive artificially if they don't want that.
