Barely Able to Walk, 93-year-old Banana George Attempts Water Skiing Record
Barely able to walk, and in nearly constant pain from six back surgeries and a broken neck, George leaned on his friends for help to the boat, for another record-breaking attempt. His good friend Lane Bowers agreed to drive the boat, "I've had every one of his doctors and family members call me and tell me this is not a good idea but this is what he lives to do so I'm just trying to help him do what he wants to do most," Bryant said. "I'm gonna keep him as safe as I can and we're gonna take him out there."
What happened next is a testimony to the human spirit and the power of belief.
With only enough strength for one attempt, George got his bare feet on the water to become the oldest person in history to attempt to barefoot water ski. Did he break his own record by actually standing up and barefoot skiing? Judge for yourself at GrowingBolder.com.
