Paralyzed Man Retraces Hike Through The Grand Canyon
Bob Headings once hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back, but today he is unable to walk because of an accident. He dreamed of doing the hike again, and was finally able to with the help of his three sons and eight grandsons.
"Dad was always the type — when someone told him he couldn't do something, by golly, he was going to do it," Bob's son, Rick Headings, said.
The family trained for four months to be able to pull and carry Headings through the trails.
The family set off in March and it took them an exhausting six hours to reach the bottom and almost twice as long to get back to the top.
Fellow hikers that saw the family soon learned the story behind the hike.
"So much determination and care and love. It's just fantastic," said one passerby.
"Hats off to you three guys and your grandkids. I still have tears in my eyes," another passerby told the group.
