On October 8, 2010, art student Emilie Gossiaux
was struck by a semi-truck while riding her bike in Brooklyn. Left functionally blind, deaf, unable to communicate, and showing few signs of cognitive activity, Emilie was judged to be too mentally impaired to undergo rehabilitation. Then her boyfriend, Alan Lundgard, found a way to reach her.
(You can see some of Emilie's art, created both before and after the accident, at her main page.)
