Watch: Brad Smeele makes 'major progress' following wakeboarding accident
A wakeboarding accident in Florida left the former world champion Brad Smeele a quadriplegic, confined to a wheelchair and almost ready to give up on life. The injury changed everything for the 29-year-old. The days of back-to-back summers wakeboarding around the world was over. Instead, his new full-time job was learning how to walk again.
