Hawking in Danger??

This story is just WEIRD....anyone else heard about THIS?...it's full of strange comments like...

"Detectives want to question Hawking about a number of minor injuries he recently suffered."

...and...

"The Daily Mirror reported on Monday that Hawking’s three children feared he might be the victim of someone suffering from Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, a disease where sufferers harm others to draw attention to themselves.

“The family are worried sick. They’ve been suspicious for some time that someone has been harming Stephen,” an unnamed source told the newspaper.

The inquiry was triggered when nursing staff contacted police last summer after the professor was left stranded in his wheelchair in the garden of his home on the hottest day of the year and suffered severe heatstroke and sunburn, the Mirror said."

I mean....if someone is hurting him...why doesn't he TELL somone?....personally, if I saw someone tweaking someone in a wheelchair, they'd be in for a stomping...sheesh...

WTF? I would just like to see a list of all of the "syndromes" out there that people use to blame their selfless acts...

Weird, twisted, bizarre.
You're right. Why doesn't he just tell someone? True, he can't speak other than through a computerized synthesizer, but he's not mute!
