Dr. John Frachella fell off a 15 foot cliff on his mountain bike in Douglas County last weekend.


He broke his neck in five places.   When he showed up at the St. Charles Emergency Room, they didn't think his injuries were that serious.


But his neurosurgeon, Dr. Kent Yundt did.


"And he said, I was in serious trouble, but he couldn't tell me what we were going to do next until he saw the Cat scan.  Then he said I need to have  surgery.  He said you are so unstable, you're a hair's breath from Chris Reeve."


Dr. Yundt convinced Dr. John as he's know, to undergo the surgery.  He now has a plate in his neck and is expected to make a full recovery.


He has to remain immobilized and quiet for the next three months, while he heals.
