Australian stranded in India after spinal injury

Typically this blog is discussing people who have had a disability before they decide to travel.
The story of George Dobson is a little different.
The Australian had a hiking accident while in India. He suffered spinal injuries that left him without the use of his arms and legs. He's stranded in a hospital there with his family working to get him home.
Says Therese Dobson, George's ex-wife,:

"He's coming to terms with what's happened psychologically as well, so we're just trying to reassure him. We're holding strong at the moment. Our focus is on getting him back and we can't afford to drop our bundle."
The family has setup a website describing George's plight and soliciting donations.
