The manipulation would supposedly be as a result of laryngoscopy as part of the evaluation, after which the said incident occurred.

well, now we have a case - and no need to be sorry.

Though I am still missing some details (why manipulation of c-spine? Due 
to trauma, manipulation?) see my comments to Sal.

Sal, yes, such things happen. In my view there is no general rule, one 
has to treat what is worst and has to consider both sides: is immediate 
operative care *necessary* or can be delayed without endangering the 
patient further, location of vessel lesion, size of ischaemic area, kind 
of available treatment options for example.
