Cornel Hrisca-Munn could have called it a day and given up a long time ago. This young man is a former Romanian orphan, which is a steep place to crawl out from, but add that to the fact that he was born without forearms and only one working leg. Insurmountable? No way.
Cornel Hrisca-Munn has become an acclaimed swimmer and drummer. Yes, drummer. Yes, swimmer.
The first time we heard from him was about a year ago when he drummed for us the first time. Now Hrisca-Munn, who is a self-taught drummer, beats the hell out the Foo Fighters’ song “Everlong.”
In the video’s description, Hrisca-Munn calls himself a “disabled drummer,” but we beg to differ. Note to self: if ever feeling pitiful again, this reporter will again watch this video of this incredible man.
