Old Man Crippled by Polio Spends His Life Building a Helicopter

(Video Link

Agustín lives in Siguatepeque, Honduras. As a child, polio broke his body and left him nearly immobile. But Agustín had a dream: he would build a helicopter. All he has is junk from local trash heaps, but since 1958, he's worked on this project. People don't understand Agustín. He explains, "The problem is that everything is incredible and people don’t accept it." He says that one day, his helicopter will fly.
