Beyond the Headlines - Grant Korgan South Pole Expedition



After a devastating snowmobile accident in 2010, doctors told Incline Village resident Grant Korgan he'd never walk again. But last month -- less than two years later -- Korgan became the first adaptive athlete to reach the South Pole. Korgan and his wife, Shawna, talk about what it took to get Grant rehabilitated to the point where he could attempt the expedition and how Shawna surprised him and was waiting to meet him when he arrived at the South Pole.
