Suicidal Tendencies - Can't Stop

17-year old Darren More was playing hockey when a hip check resulted in him falling down and banging his head on the nearby boards. That was on 11th November 2004. He went into a coma for six weeks and then was hospitalized for four months. From that day till today, Darren has been suffering and his parents are suing the manufacturers of the helmet since it could not provide adequate protection or prevent the brain damages. At 22-years of age, he suffers from severe memory problems and has been reduced to a young person who has to always depend on someone else – this hurts when he used to a fun loving individual before the accident occurred. At times, he becomes suicidal and all the windows of the house have been barred.
