Double-amputee becomes rookie cop

Matias Ferreira, who lost both legs below the knees to an IED in Afghanistan in 2010, just graduated from the Suffolk County, NY police academy, according to this article. When asked by his fellow recruits what would happen if he broke a prosthetic on duty, he told them “If I break a leg, I just go into the trunk, put a new one on and I continue my tour of duty. If you break a leg, you are out of the job for a couple of months.”
