Jim Toring, a former UCLA and Harvard-Westlake High water polo star competing for the U.S. national team, is in a coma at a Paris hospital after being struck by a bus. Doctors have performed surgery to drain fluid from Toring's skull and relieve pressure from cranial swelling. The accident occurred early Monday morning. The U.S. team had just finished competition in the French Open when Toring, walking with teammates, stepped from behind a parked bus and into the path of an oncoming bus.

In the crystal-clear water of the Harvard-Westlake High pool, the legacy of Jim Toring lives within Holden Burkons, a feisty, fearless 14-year-old freshman water polo player. At 5 feet 2, 103 pounds, Burkons resembles a jockey trying to mount a wild horse as he engages 6-9 teammate Bill Strickland in a duel for the ball during practice. It's comparable to Billy Barty taking on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in a game of one-on-one.

The Jim Toring Memorial boys' water polo tournament, scheduled for today through Saturday at Harvard-Westlake and Long Beach Millikan highs, has been canceled in the wake of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. "We feel it's the right thing to do," said Harvard-Westlake Coach Rich Corso, the tournament director. "We looked for ways to do it next weekend, but there are other tournaments and league matches, and there was just no way."
