    Christopher Reeve, the actor who played Superman, died at the age of 52.

    Reeve fell into a coma after going into cardiac arrest while at his New York home and died.

    Reeve was paralysed from the shoulders down after a riding accident in 1995. The accident turned him into a worldwide advocate for spinal cord research.

    He was being treated at Northern Westchester Hospital for a pressure wound that he developed, a common complication for people living with paralysis.

    His the wound had become severely infected, resulting in a serious systemic infection. Reeve died of heart failure.

    I think, after years of waisting away in a way Superman himself woulda been broken by, he died of complications of his back injury. Oh but the real superman was killed off by doomsday, DC comics shouldn't a gotten greedy by doin that then bringing superman back, that was prolly the underlying cause of all this trauma Christopher Reeves endured. Imagine riding on a horse, finally feeling fullfilled after hearing your character died so he'll never be played by a person on a movie ever again...then figurin out the next second DC's bringin' him back, yahh horsey...ahhhh crack!

    He died from complications to bed sores, & his loving wife died shortly afterwards from lung cancer, such tragidy, I think he really wanted to find a cure for his problem, & I wish he had.

    he was competing in a horse jumping competition and he fell off and was paralyzed. I would imagine that his system just couldnt function anymore.
