Savannah State Student Survives Motorcycle Accident, Faces Long Odds
The Savannah Morning News today profiled Tyquan Burney, a senior electrical engineering major at Savannah State University who survived a severe motorcycle and lives with limited use of one of his arms. Facing piling medical bills and uncertain recovery, Burney remains positive about his health and his post-graduation prospects.
The last thing Burney remembers before losing consciousness on the operating table the night of the wreck is begging the doctors not to take his arm. He was just a few months away from getting his electrical engineering degree. Without two working arms and hands, the degree would be useless, he says.
“I love my engineering. I love what I do. And I never wanted to be with a disability.” (Savannah Morning News)
