    He seems like he is doing well. Hope he continues to do his passion.

    Another famous disabled diver is Frank Gardner, the BBC Security Correspondent who was paralysed in a terrorist attack.

    Video of him diving here

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    And wasn't there a chap who could only walk AFTER he'd been diving? he had to go diving regularly to stay out of his chair. That one always amazed me.

    It's great to see stuff like this achieving results.

    btw: I used to be involved in target shooting for the disabled AND for the blind. It was a great antidote to coaching that section of the able bodied fraternity who had excuses lined up for why they weren't doing better.
    "...are we human, or are we diver?"
