MANILA, Philippines – Many had doubts that former B-Meg player Eugene Tejada would be able to walk again, much less play basketball, after dislocating his spine during a game against Red Bull five years ago.

The severe injury ended Tejada’s basketball career and rendered him bedridden. He was even put on a liquid diet of soup and Jello, and suffered depression when he realized the extent of his injury.

But after years of therapy and intense prayers, Tejada is now back on his feet and is planning to write a book about his ordeal to inspire others who are also battling the same demons. Dateline Philippines, ANC, March 27, 2012.
