Technology Helps Triple Amputee Run Again
In September 2001, Cameron Clapp lost both legs and his right arm in a freak train accident. But thanks to a new set of high-tech prosthetics, Clapp can run again -- and he's even winning some medals. Technology reporter Xeni Jardin profiles Clapp.
Supported by his large extended family -- and his identical twin brother Jesse -- Clapp has fought against his handicap to make an astounding recovery.
Not only can the young man swim, run and even play golf again, he recently won four gold medals at the Endeavor Games, a sports competition for amputees.
