    Double amputee conquers Mount Everest

    This is cool, a lot of people with both legs wouldn't do this.

    Wow, good for him.. That has to put him on top of the world. (no pun intended) That is a great feat for any person, let alone a double amputee.

    Awesome! Nice to see these kinds of stories. At least he didn't have to worry about getting frostbitten toes.

    A fantastic achievement!

    What really got me was this:
    "A New Zealand mountain climber who lost both his legs to frostbite has become the first double amputee to conquer Mount Everest, despite breaking one of his artificial limbs during the ascent.

    Breaking a leg would end any other guy's attempt in its tracks!

    The reporter told him not to run off....they wanted to get a couple of photos. Doesn't surprise me that he made it though, he had a leg up on his competition.
    Daunte who?
