Ryan Diviney suffered a devastating brain injury in a beating at college. Ryan was 20 years old, a sophomore in pre-law at West Virginia University, when two young men nearly killed him.
"It was late at night, Ryan was back pedaling trying to get out of the way, the next you know, one kid sucker punched him in the head," which sent him falling, explained Sue Diviney. "Another walked up and kicked him in the head. They said it was like punting a football," Sue said. The two thugs fled, leaving Ryan on the ground bleeding from his ears.
