One slip, one changed life: Eric Olson, a 2000 HHS graduate, is paralyzed after slipping on a dock and falling into a lake head firstThe weeklong vacation had gone so well. Eric Olson made a homemade potato gun that he was firing all over the place. He turned his kayak into a sailboat of sorts, outfitting it with a big tarp so he could sail all over Big Wood Lake near Grantsburg, Wis. Over the years, his grandmother’s cabin there had provided the Olsons the perfect place for a summer getaway. But on July 31, 2009, all that changed in an instant.
