Texas man who's missing parts of arms, legs posts video of himself mowing lawn


WESLACO, Texas – Rene Ayala posted a video of himself mowing his lawn on Wednesday, which doesn’t seem like such a big a deal until you realize he’s in a wheelchair.

After the video was posted, a GoFundMe page was started to raise money to buy Ayala a riding lawn mower.

A single father of four who lost parts of his arms and legs nearly 20 years ago, Ayala clearly doesn’t let anything get him down.

He was severely injured in a gas explosion and sustained major burns to his body, according to High School Sports Magazine.

His love and dedication to his four children, all of whom are star athletes, is a real inspiration. 

I can sure use a riding lawnmower or a tractor because my wheelchair is really taking a beating... can't say I don't do nothing
