#Paraplegic Indian Army Soldiers celebrate Independence day underwater
Sepoy Min Bahadur Thapa recounts the horrifying incident which left him wheel-chair bound “I was on my way to the India-China border. We were travelling in a Civilian van through UP when a bunch of goons got into the bus to rob the passengers. I stepped up to stop them but in the process they shot me in the neck. The bullet severed by spinal cord at the D3/D4 vertebrae leaving me paralyzed below the chest.”
A team of 5 wheelchair-bound army Soldiers - Suresh Kumar Kirki, Min Bahadur Thapa, Tapas Kumar Roy, Naina Singh Thapa and Amol Boriwale - who are also a part of the Indian #Para -basketball team and recently bagged the # Bronze in the 4th Bali cup wheelchair basketball tournament held in Bali, Indonesia went on their first-ever underwater scuba dive, breaking free from their bodily limitations.
These brave soldiers lost mobility due to spinal cord injuries sustained in the line of duty and are currently residing at the Army's Paraplegic Rehabilitation Centre # PRC in Khirkee, Pune.
Thanks #Finkick Adventures for organizing the 'Freedom Dive' and celebrating the paraplegic heroes of our country.
