Man who had stroke in his bathroom survived on toilet water for seven days
VANCOUVER—Water from a toilet bowl and thoughts of his family kept a 62-year-old Dawson Creek, BC, man alive for a week when a stroke left him partially paralyzed on his bathroom floor.
Sitting in a wheelchair at the Holy Family Hospital in Vancouver, Steve Adsley calmly recounted his harrowing seven-day misery after he collapsed in his condominium on June 26.
Jammed between the vanity and the toilet, the retired financial controller and father of three said he struggled to move his body but his entire left side was paralyzed.
