Paraplegic and walking with crutches.....

Via del a plata from Cadiz (2019)
In May/June 2016 I walked upon a 25-30 year old guy walking Frances with a handicap.

From memory he took around 10 steps supported by two crutches before pausing for a second.

I was blown away by his willpower and stamina.

From what I remember he successfully arrived Santiago and there was a YouTube video on his arrival.

Anyone remembering his name?

Is there a link to the video possibly??

Much obliged for any tip/help given in my direction🙏🏼

PP,

Use the forum SEARCH box to find further info. Type the terms, crutches 2016, and then tap the box. A list of relevant posts should appear, (hopefully)

Update: further queries suggest that the pilgrim in 2016 using crutches was named Daniel.
