Man cut in half by forklift marks anniversary of tragedy with one-armed pull ups

A man who was cut in half by a forklift in a horror construction accident has shared a video of him doing one armed pullups on the third anniversary of the incident.

Labourer Loren Schauers, 20, became an internet sensation after miraculously surviving a freak 50ft drop from a bridge which led to a life-saving hemicorporectomy operation.

The lad who was just 17 years old at the time, said he'd accepted he would never walk again before the surgery because he'd seen the state of his limbs after the incident on September 27, 2019.

Loren and his doting wife Sabia Reiche, 23, have been eager to bring fans and admirers of their struggle along with them on their journey ever since, through social media and YouTube.

On Tuesday (September 27), the couple revealed three years worth of unseen clips collated into one hour-long video on their channel.

In one clip, despite having just one arm, Loren shows off his pull up skills as he does five reps, aided by a nurse.

The clip was shot while he was in hospital in Chicago in 2020.

For all the hardship and physical pain the couple have endured, Sabia and Loren have maintained a cracking sense of humour across Instagram and TikTok.

Unsurprisingly for a man with no private parts, a couple of curiosities from followers dominated question and answer videos early on.

One of them being how Loren's digestive system works in the absence of key bodily functions.

Sabia addressed the interest in a YouTube question and answer video they filmed from Loren's hospital bed at the time.

She said: "The biggest question that has been asked since our original video is how Loren goes to the bathroom."

The inspiring bloke from Montana, US, elaborated: "A colostomy which is my colon pulled out of my body so I can poop.

"And I have bilateral nephrostomies, they're tubes that go into my kidneys that drain my kidneys into bags so therefore that is how I poop, pee and fart."
