Whatever Happened To… the quadriplegic who defied medical odds?

Published: November 10, 2011

Pat Rummerfield is a busy man. He is a marathoner, an Ironman Triathlon finisher, a speedboat racer and a world-speed-record-setting auto racer. He is a motivational speaker, an avid researcher and fundraiser for spinal injury treatment.

Rummerfield is a quadriplegic with no feeling in his legs from the knees down since he was in an auto accident in 1974.

With two-thirds of his spinal cord non-functioning, by all accounts, he shouldn’t even be able to walk. As detailed in a 2008 Post article, he continually baffles doctors and scientists, who hypothesize that he has been able to maintain muscle function through continual exercise.
