Campbell Feared Paralysis Like Reeve

Scottish singer DARIUS CAMPBELL feared he would end up paralysed like tragic actor CHRISTOPHER REEVE following a terrifying car crash last month (Jul10).
The Colourblind hitmaker cracked several vertebrae in his neck in a road accident on 19 July (10) while on vacation in Spain.
And now the star, previously known as Darius Danesh, has opened up about the ordeal, revealing he nearly lost the use of his limbs like the late Superman star, who became a quadriplegic after a horse-riding accident.
He tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "(The nurse told me) three millimetres this way, you no walk; three millimetres that way, you're dead. It was like how you'd talk to a baby, but I knew what she was trying to say - I was the luckiest man alive.
"Because of the haze, we didn't see that there was a diesel spill on the road. Before we could work out what was going on, it was already too late. The car careered out (of) control on a bend, and we smashed into a wall at 70 miles per hour. My first recollection is my friend, the driver, asking if I was okay. After getting out of the car, I remember a sharp pain in my neck. The adrenaline carried me for 30 seconds or so, and then I collapsed. I'm so lucky that I've got no neurological damage."
But the 30 year old refused to undergo surgery against doctors' advice, fearing an operation would damage his voice: "It could have a major effect on my singing voice... I've definitely used up one of my nine lives."
