He had to undergo multiple operations but is now permanently disabled. Two months after his injury he was also diagnosed of cancer of the Thyroid for which he needed further operations.

Poorer financially but richer in experiences of life he is now a voice for the disabled and has written the book 'The Second Chance in Life' as an honest reflection of his life experiences to motivate people that every adversity can still be turned into an opportunity.
