Impairment
Both of his legs were amputated after an abandoned mortar projectile exploded in 2001. Two of his friends died in the blast. "Some of my friends found the mortar and they took it home. The moment I arrived, it exploded." (revistalaregion.blogspot.com, 13 Mar 2011; senabuenasnuevas.wordpress.com, 19 Nov 2008)
