    15 year Old Becomes Tetraplegic After Being Slammed on Head In A BJJ Match

    Source article and Google translate:

    The jiu-jitsu Gabriel Diniz, 15, suffered a serious accident while competing and is without body movements from the neck down. The fatality occurred on August 4, a Sunday, when Gabriel - who is still young, but struggled among adults - disputed the semifinals of the second round of the Championship Capixaba Jiu Jitsu in Gym Jones dos Santos Neves, in Victoria.

    According Brisa Carvalho, mother of Gabriel, doctors reported that the athlete was injured in the third and fourth vertebrae and underwent two surgeries. In the first, a day after the accident, doctors lined column Gabriel and put a plate in his neck. The second operation was done to remove bone fragments from injured site. Still unsure whether the child will be completely recovered, Brisa Oak ensures that the young already talking about fighting back.

    - He does not move his arms, legs do not move, but doctors are still not sure of anything. They (doctors) say to us that only time will tell if Gabriel will be able to walk again. He is responding well and we are asking God to all succeed. He says he still going to fight back and be champion. For me, I also believe that he will come back - says the mother of the fighter.

    Still in the hospital bed where he is hospitalized, in the municipality of Vila Velha, Gabriel Diniz sent a message to those who are praying for him.

    - I want to thank everyone out there who is praying, and I get just a place to do my rehab and come back soon to the mats - said Gabriel, who lives in Alegre, south of the Holy Spirit, and competed for Team Black Conch House.

    Federation changes rules after crash

    According Agnaldo Goes, president of the Federation of Jiu Jitsu of the Holy Spirit, even though only 15, Gabriel Diniz, often fought among competitors adults. However, the leader said that from now on account of the guidelines of the Brazilian Confederation of the sport, teenagers will no longer be able to compete against athletes from the adult category. Also according to Agnaldo, the fighter who applied the coup Gabriel is 23 years old, eight more than the teenager.

    From Wiki

    Tetraplegia, also known as quadriplegia, is paralysis caused by illness or injury to a human that results in the partial or total loss of use of all their limbs and torso; paraplegia is similar but does not affect the arms.

    .....


    Tetraplegia is caused by damage to the brain or the spinal cord at a high level C1C7in particular, spinal cord injuries secondary to an injury to the cervical spine. The injury, which is known as a lesion, causes victims to lose partial or total function of all four limbs, meaning the arms and the legs. Tetraplegia is defined in many ways; C1C4 usually affects arm movement more so than a C5C7 injury; however, all tetraplegics have or have had some kind of finger dysfunction. So, it is not uncommon to have a tetraplegic with fully functional arms but no nervous control of their fingers and thumbs.

    Make sure you treat your training partners well and if you ever get in a dangerous situation for your health tap early if you can. I'd hate to have anything similar to this happen in a mixed martial arts match especially on a big stage like the UFC.

    That's truly a horrible thing to happen to anyone, let alone a child.

    After watching the video, that was an odd move done by white. I got the impression he was frustrated/angry...It's difficult to imagine what he wanted to accomplish with it other than to get out of the position.

    This is fucking horrible and I hope that people will realize that competition wins aren't worth that much. Just tap. You train to win against bad people who want to kill you. You compete against people who want a trophy or a medal. The trophy and medal aren't worth your health or well-being.

    Not tapping didn't have anything to do with that.
