A father, triathlete and New York City EMT is beating the odds and inspiring his fellow FDNY coworkers.

On Wednesday, he was one of 15 promoted to lieutenant. What makes him so special is that he’s the only one of them doing it as an amputee.

As David Kruysman crossed the stage to be promoted, there was a slight limp in one of his legs. It is, he said, the result of a birth defect that left him having to use a prosthesis all his life.
