American becomes first paraplegic to scale Kilimanjaro
AN American man who broke his back in a freak skiing accident two decades ago has become the first paraplegic to scale Mount Kilimanjaro.  
Chris Waddell made it to the summit of the 19,340 feet African mountain after pedaling a custom made handcycle over seven days.  
Having planned and trained for almost two years, the 12 times Paralympic skiing medallist climbed the mountain and only required assistance at 18,300 feet to get over a walled section of large boulders just below Gilman's Point.

Games console and TV bought for hospital
A NINTENDO Wii and television has been purchased for use at a North Yorkshire Hospital. 
The Friends of Stead, which used to raise funds for the now disused Stead Memorial Hospital, has donated the equipment costing ¬£800 to Redcar Primary Care Hospital. 
The games system was at the top of the wish list of the occupational therapists and physiotherapists at the site. 
Occupational therapist Rachel Cowperthwaite said: 'It helps the patient improve particular movements, especially co-ordination and hand function, while having a bit of fun at the same time.'
