While most able-bodied people wouldn’t trust themselves in one of these heavy construction trucks, this guy fearlessly mans the huge machinery with confidence and ease, despite obvious setbacks.
A young man in Jacksonville, Texas had his life turned upside-down after a car accident in 2016 left him paralyzed from the chest down. Before the accident, he loved working on heavy equipment, and that didn’t change after the fact either.
In what’s arguably the best unassisted transfer ever, the young fellow moves himself from the tractor into his nearby wheelchair with nothing but the help of a rope hooked up to the top of the truck, leaving thousands touched and inspired.
