Ben Underwood, RIP

On this very historic day there is sad news out of Elk Grove, as the Bee reports that the Ben Underwood lost his battle with cancer yesterday. This was the young man who, after losing his eyes to cancer as a boy, taught himself echolocation — basically he could navigate the world by emitting sound waves. If you haven’t heard of this story it was the most amazing thing you’ll ever see. This is really tough news and I wish his family the best.

  1. Sacramento lost one of its most amazing kids yesterday. Ben was less impressive for his practically superhuman abilities than for the attitude he had in coping with his chronic affliction. I’m glad we got to at least learn about him these past few years.


  2. I remember seeing him around school, and camera crews following him during lunch time… Its good to know he’s in a better place.
