Boat keeps wheelchair angler's dreams alive

Some folks like to fish.But for Mark Grantham, being on a Missouri lake or river targeting bass, crappie and white bass is at the core of his being. Nine years ago a tragic accident on an inflatable water slide broke Grantham's neck in a way that left him paralyzed from the chest down, with no grip in his hands and only slight movement in his arms. "I grew up in a family of five kids and there was never a question whether we'd be doing something on a weekend — we were ALWAYS going somewhere to fish or camp," recalled Grantham, 33.
