Spend every single day in a wheelchair? Lars would be bored out of his mind. So for a change of pace, the 23-year-old psychology student switches to a dogsled and lets eight huskies pull him at high speed along a Baltic Sea beach.
At the sound of the wolves howling from the other side of the dike, the relaxed expression disappears from Lars’ face. Just a moment earlier he was quietly scanning the sea. Lars, 23, a psychology student, whose disability makes him dependent on a ventilator and wheelchair, wants to hang out with his parents at the Baltic Sea for the weekend. But when the eerie howling begins, Lars doesn’t look very relaxed at all. Then a broad smile spreads across his face. “Finally! There they are!” he says to his parents Inge and Michel, standing on the sand nearby.
