Impairment
He fell from a 15 metre height while taking a picture at a shopping centre in Budapest, Hungary, which resulted in paralysis. "I remain the same person as I was before the accident, I just got four wheels as a bonus replacement for my two legs. I was in rehabilitation for a year and struggled to recover. I owe a lot to my physiotherapists. I can walk with crutches at home, inside the apartment. I can also go upstairs to my room, so I didn't have to sell our house. I only use the wheelchair when I'm out on the street." (168ora.hu, 07 Oct 2017)
Other information
WHEELCHAIR DANCING
He is a member of the Roll Dance Budapest Wheelchair Combi Dance Ensemble in Hungary. "I hated dancing as an able-bodied person, but I've been really enjoying it since I've been here. It's a good community and I see dance as a challenge. I can learn the choreographs pretty quickly, and the love of the audience gives me self-confidence."
