Philippe Croizon, French adventurer and quadruple amputee, who became the first limbless man to swim across the English Channel, will have his customized wheelchair returned to him after it was stolen from him last week.
Croizon’s wheelchair is worth $31,000 USD. His chair was found dumped in a parking lot Friday; just a few hours after Croizon discovered it stolen.
A bus driver found the wheelchair and turned it over to the police Monday after seeing the against-the-odds adventurer emotional public pleas for its safe return over the weekend.
Croizon was supposed to pick up his customized wheelchair, which he had only recently begun using, Thursday, August 8.
Croizon told French television:
"It's a big, big relief … All's well that ends well."
Croizon was on holiday with his friends in Dieppe, in France, on Friday, August 9, when he noticed his wheelchair and trailer missing.
