Such a tragic end to a guy who had everything. Looks, money and a successful career came to a halt with one fall from a horse. Such tragedy could only seem to occur in a fictional tale, before Christopher Reeve.
Paralyzed film actor Christopher Reeve, who played Superman, has died of heart failure, a spokesman said on Monday.
He said in a statement Reeve went into a coma on Saturday after suffering a heart attack at his home during treatment for a pressure wound.
"The wound had become severely infected...Reeve was admitted to Northern Westchester Hospital on Saturday evening and never regained consciousness," the statement said.
