Decatur, Indiana (CNN) -- It's a grim topic: What would you want if you were on life support after a life-altering accident? Would you want to live in a wheelchair, or would you want to die?
An Indiana deer hunter and father-to-be who was left paralyzed after falling from a tree chose the latter, state authorities said Wednesday.
Timothy E. Bowers, 32, of Decatur was hunting Saturday afternoon when he fell about 16 feet to the ground from a tree stand, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources said.
Bowers suffered a spine injury and paralysis, authorities said.
On Sunday, he chose "to remove himself from life support systems," the department said in a statement. He died that evening.
i saw this story in my morning reading. It's very very sad. Tough on everyone involved and it makes you wonder what would you do in his situation. I've personally never been afraid of death, nor would I want to burden my family with caring for me so maybe that's why I can see this mans perspective as some I know think his act was selfish. It leads to the QOD:
Is there a point or a circumstance where you would rather die than live?
