Before Friday's accident, Robert Woo was looking forward to a family trip next month to Disney World, a chance to take his wife and their two young sons for a spin on the rides and a stroll through the Magic Kingdom.

But Saturday, Woo's stunned family was wondering if the 39-year-old would ever regain use of his legs.
