A life interrupted
Isaac Salas broke his C1 and C2 vertebrae in a Cheyenne South wrestling practice on Nov. 17, 2010. In the months that followed his accident, the local community came together to raise money for Isaac as he recovered in Craig Hospital in Englewood, Colo. He 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.
