On October 10th 2004, Christopher Reeve died in hospital leaving the world heartbroken. The actor’s role as Superman had turned him into a global superstar but after a freak horse-riding accident left him paralyzed, his determination to walk again and his campaigning for America’s disabled community transformed him into another type of hero.
