On Nov. 9, 2010, Trey Humphrey, who lives in east Reno and attended the University of Nevada from 2001-05 before joining the Marines, stepped on an improvised explosive device while helping a wounded Marine to safety. Humphrey was blown high into the air, his right leg eviscerated below the knee, before falling into the crater of the explosion. At that moment, his world began to move in slow motion.
After progressing in the roller park on his mono-ski, Humphrey got the idea to take it off the ramp into the facilities foam pit. No one expected to see what Humphrey did into the foam pit.
