Life or Limb

The Haiti National Amputee Soccer Team competed in a demonstration match at Lumpkins Stadium (Waxahachie ISD) on Nov 14, 2015. Over the public address system, Dr. Fred Sorrells, President of the International Institute of Sports, shared the story of player #10.

He was at work when the earthquake (Haiti 2010) hit. A beam fell on his leg and all rescue attempts failed. The choice became clear: his life or his leg.

Today, he is one of the stars on the team.
