Here’s the relevant quote:
A post on a bushwalking website said none of the men had canoed on the river before and that they had intended to try to complete their journey in two days when it was likely to take a week.
The post, made by a rafting assistant called David, detailed how the group seemed blissfully unaware on Sunday of the journey ahead of them.
One even had an artificial leg, David said.
Funny. I thought the whole point of a prosthetic leg was to enable a person who needs it to do pretty much the same range of things as a person who doesn’t have a prosthetic leg. Sometimes, it enables the prosthetic-leg-user to do those things even better than non-prosthetic-leg-users.
But no, not according to David.
Well, you learn something new every day. Or something.
