Double amputee reaches top of Mount Everest

STORY: This war veteran is the first double amputee to climb Mount Everest

Location: Kathmandu, Nepal

"My reaction to summiting Everest was, yes, we did it! And I hugged all the sherpas and just cried like a baby. I was so happy."

Hari Budha Magar lost both of his legs while serving Afghanistan

He reached the top of the world's tallest mountain on prosthetic legs

"How I achieve my goals, simply is focus on what you're doing. There's so much distraction around you and around the world. I'm just focusing on what you love to do and what you need to do. That's it. One step at a time, we can climb Mount Everest."
