On New Years Eve 2005, Fernando with two friends lost control of the car he was driving and slammed into a utility pole. Fernando was knocked unconscious as the car burst into flames, forcing his two passengers to jump out. As he came to, Fernando found himself engulfed in flames and jumped from the car, sustaining massive injuries to his hands back and head.

Fernando is still in recovery and fighting for the use of his hands that were nearly amputated.

Fernando says he looks at life through a “different window.”
