VIDEO: Paralyzed Trucker Won’t Let Injury Stop Him


Take a look as dump truck driver Nick Shortridge refuses to let a spinal cord injury keep him out of the driver’s seat.

According to the video description: “In 2009 I fell 50 ft from a tree (tree trimmer by trade) and was paralyzed from my chest down (T9 complete). After my 3 month stay in the hospital I switched up my profession. I started a excavation business. This video was taken to show people how I transfer from my wheelchair to my dump truck. I hope to inspire as many people as I can to get out and try to do what they love. My wife filmed this in the morning before going to work. We did this video to motivate and also to show how a spinal cord patient transfers to a vehicle, in this case a big dump truck.
