Georgia Tech student severely injured after fall from bed overcomes odds and graduates

ATLANTA — A Georgia Tech student who fell from his loft bed and fractured his skull has beaten the odds and graduated this summer.

Channel 2 Action News first told you about Clark Jacobs in March 2015, when he fell seven feet from his bed at his fraternity house.

He also suffered a stroke, having to spend a month recovering at the Shepherd Spinal Center in Buckhead.


Throughout his journey, Jacobs has had to learn how to walk, talk and eat again.

He eventually returned to Georgia Tech where he has earned a degree in mechanical engineering.
