Back in 2012, Aimee Copeland was a 24-year-old a grad-student at The University of Georgia.
That year, she decided to spend some time off with friends, enjoying the last few weeks before graduation.
One day, they decided to go on a trip to a small lake, where they could zipline over the water. The adventurous group immediately wanted to try it out.
What Aimee couldn’t have known was that that moment would change her life forever. A zipline consists of a long stretched wire that sits high up in the air, providing stunning views below. Generally, it is completely safe.
But when Aimee’s turn came something went completely wrong. The cable suddenly snapped and Aimee fell down toward a cliff… and lost her leg that day.
Aimee was taken to the hospital, but the tragedy didn’t stop there.
