A former soldier from Nepal lost both legs to an I.E.D. in Afghanistan 13 years ago . . . but just made history by scaling Mount Everest. He used special prosthetics with spikes to help him climb. He made it to the top last Friday.
He says he went into a deep depression after the injury and started drinking a lot. But then he decided to keep living . . . went skydiving . . . got involved in Paralympic sports . . . and started climbing mountains.
He’s the first person to climb Everest after losing both legs above the knee. His motto is nothing’s impossible, you just have to adapt.
Now he’s planning to go back to Afghanistan to the spot where he lost his legs, so he can say THANK YOU. He says he never would have climbed Everest if it hadn’t happened, adding, quote, “Whatever happens, it happens for good.”
