Colorblind Yakima man says he sees colors after head knock

YAKIMA (AP) — Seventy-year-old Richard Riggs of Yakima says he has been colorblind since birth.

But after hitting his head in a recent fall he says he now sees the “colors of the rainbow.”

A doctor told KIMA-TV a fall could not change a genetic condition such as colorblindness, but a concussion could possibly change the way Riggs perceives colors.

Riggs plans a trip to Hawaii in March and says he can’t wait to see the flowers, and the bikinis.
