Henry O'Donnell
Hugh Odonnell

Henry O'Donnell is a story of tragedy, world records and personal triumph against the odds. What makes this story truly awesome is that in 1992 Henry, who was back then an Elite Army Ranger, fractured his neck in 3 places and spent 4 months in a body cage to stop any further damage being done to his spine. He could neither walk nor talk and had to be taught to do both again from scratch. He eschewed all the conventional methods of recovery and decided to plan his own treatment and after much pain and many setbacks

he made a full recovery. They said it couldn’t be done but Henry did it. "Doctor, if you can just get my feet back on the ground I'll do the rest" - Henry O'Donnell 1992.
