After breaking his neck in a diving accident in 1999, former chef James Price was left instantly paralysed in all four limbs and with severe pneumonia resulting in two collapsed lungs, a collapsed throat and the complete inability to breath by himself.
After a lot of surgery and a year in hospital he emerged paralysed from the chest down, with the ability to breathe, move his hands and arms, and able to wiggle his toes as well – “That’s important!” he points out with characteristic good humour.
Thirteen years on, not only has he proven a success in wheelchair rugby and Para-Athletics, but also as a TV presenter (he has been guest commentating during the London Paralympics), and in 2013 will be launching Access All Rooms to make travel more accessible for anyone with a disability using the Global Access Award Scheme (GAAS) grading system – appropriately, in gold, silver and bronze categories.
