Paraplegic Balloonist Inspires Others

The worlds only paraplegic hot air balloon pilot is inspiring others because he is living his dream.

Michael Glen severed his spine in a car accident more than 10 years ago . He now travels and speaks to children about the importance of seatbelts and how you can do anything if you set your mind to it.

Michael is flying high across the sky and loves his life. Since July he's been telling kids if he would have been wearing his seatbelt his injuries wouldn't have been so severe. Glen is an ambassador for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation .

"The children drive me, it encourages me when I see the smile the balloon puts on their face, I turn into that child when we bring out the balloon," say Glen.
