Heartwarming Photo of Wife Carrying Double-Amputee Marine Husband Goes Viral - ABC NewsABC News’ Robyn Weil reports:
At first glance, Jesse and Kelly Cottle, of San Diego, Calif., look like any cute couple in love.
But take a closer look at this photo of Kelly giving husband Jesse, a marine and double-amputee, a piggyback ride, and it’s clear to see why the picture has gone wildly viral.
Jesse, 28, lost both of his legs in Afghanistan in 2009 after stepping on an IED, which was all caught on video by a fellow marine wearing a helmet camera.
The footage was even used in a documentary about Jesse called “Coming Home.”
“If I hadn’t stepped on that IED I wouldn’t have met her,” Jesse told ABC News. “I wouldn’t take it back ever.”
