On Monday evening, the day after American college basketball fans watched Louisville Cardinals player, Kevin Ware, suffer a gruesome leg injury, where the the bone in his right leg snapped and tore six inches through his skin, "Piers Morgan Live" invited CNN's Senior medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta to the program and former NBA basketball player and Turner sports analyst Charles Barkley to give their expert perspective on the event.
Gupta suggested a possible source for the accident was due to "stress fractures" noting, "stress fractures actually are things that can actually weaken the bone a bit as well. So if you put a big jump, a big horizontal and vertical jump on top of a awkward landing, with these stress fractures, I think that can all play a role."
Barkley was of a different opinion and remarked that Ware's injury was "just a fluke."
"That play is made a hundred times a game," said Barkley. "We don't know if he had a stress fracture or a weakening of the bone, but that play happens every trip up and down the court where you jump and you don't come down perfectly every time."
Piers Morgan spoke with the "Subway Good Samaritan", Christopher Knafelc who jumped on to the subway tracks in Philadelphia to save a 63-year-old man who fell off the platform in front of an approaching train.
"It was very instinctive," said Knafelc on what he was thinking when he jumped on the tracks. "I think the bigger point here is the people that did not act because it really seems like the moral compass of this country has declined over the years."
Singer-songwriter Michelle Shocked clarified her position on gay marriage and homosexuality.
"If you want to keep this simple for the audience, let me just give you a straight, no, I am not homophobic," said Shocked.
"I am, for the last ten years, so deeply in love with a man that the idea of living my life without him is impossible," said Shocked. "I know how much I love him and knowing that passion that I have for him would I ever want to deny that to anyone else? Absolutely not."
