Man Helps Girlfriend With Spinal Cord Injury Cross Finish Line In New Orleans
Monique Koll, with help boyfriend Nick Zaunbrecher at the Rock n’ Roll half Marathon in New Orleans on Sunday. What’s amazing is the fact she suffered a severe spinal cord injury 4 months ago when a motorist struck her while she was riding her bicycle
Her boyfriend Nick pushed her in her wheelchair for 13 miles. Once they got to the end, he picked her up out of her chair and helped her walk across the finish line. Ladies, can you say “He’s a keeper”?
“I was crying,’’ Koll told TODAY.com. “I thought I hid it from everybody, but then the cameras caught it. I didn’t know how emotional it would be. Nick was amazing. He pushed that wheelchair over those crazy New Orleans streets for 13 miles. For him to be able to help me walk across the finish line, it was just crazy.’’
