'Superman' Christopher Reeve Dies at 52

By JIM FITZGERALD, Associated Press Writer

MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. - "Superman" actor Christopher Reeve, who turned personal tragedy into a public crusade and from his wheelchair became the nation's most recognizable spokesman for spinal cord research, has died. He was 52.

Reeve died Sunday of complications from an infection caused by a bedsore. He went into cardiac arrest Saturday, while at his Pound Ridge home, then fell into a coma and died Sunday at a hospital surrounded by his family, his publicist said.

Trust me, bedsores are BAAAAAd news. You'd be surprised how many folks in nursing homes, etc., die from complications from bedsores. Usually infections.

I am surprised though that Reeves was allowed to get one with the help he has.
