Remembering Isaac Salas
For a few months, I’ve been working on a picture story about Isaac Salas, a Cheyenne South High School wrestler who broke his C1 and C2 vertebrae in a practice on Nov. 17, 2010. In the months that followed his accident, the Cheyenne community came together to raise money for Isaac as he recovered in Craig Hospital in Englewood, Colo. Isaac continued to make steady progress in his recovery and returned home from the hospital on Aug. 4. Less than a month later on Sept. 3, Isaac died following a procedure to pulverize urinary tract stones blocking his catheter. Here is an audio slideshow I put together with some of the pictures I took of Isaac and his family.
