Man Who's Paralyzed Walks a Full Marathon in Robotic Suit

A guy in South Carolina who's paralyzed from the waist down broke a world record on Saturday by walking a FULL MARATHON (26.2 miles) in just under 34 hours. His name is Adam Gorlitsky, and he did it with the help of a robotic exoskeleton that straps to his legs. 

A ton of people came out to support him. They'd walk a mile alongside him. Then other friends would show up to walk the next mile.

He says he did it to send a message to people that your disabilities and adversities should never define who you are. 

Here's a video from CBS Los Angeles BEFORE the marathon
