Jack Wallace: When Tragedy Hit, Hockey Came to the Rescue

Americas Now

It was July 2008 when 10-year-old Jack Wallace had a waterskiing accident in which he lost his leg. He descended into a deep depression and, at his young age, couldn’t envision himself living without a limb. But the discovery of a program specializing in disability sports made him fall in love all over again with his favorite sport. Hockey. A decade later he was on the national hockey team that won the gold medal at the Paralympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang. Dan Williams met with Wallace before he embarked on his new adventure at the Beijing Games. #Features, #AmericasNow
