    Split-seconds on the sporting field can change a young life forever - a macabre reality that 20-year-old Kurt Drysdale's family has been forced to confront.

    The "up and coming superstar" from Stanwell Tops, south of Sydney, was left breathing on a respirator following a rugby league tackle gone wrong, with fears he may be a quadriplegic.

    "The guys on the field said he was instantly screaming in pain, and immediately lost feeling below his neck," his mother Sonya told The Illawarra Mercury.

        That's terrible. Hope he makes a full recovery, as they say one day he moves his arms, next he can't.
