South Australian footballer returns to sport after losing hand

A South Australian footballer has returned to the sport after losing his hand in a car accident - with his unique new way of playing inspiring his local community. 

In April 2018, Josh Sandow was driving his work van home after drinking at a local pub when he rolled it in a single vehicle crash which led to him to lose part of his left arm and damage the back of his right hand. 

After a long recovery he has now re-joined his local team the MinMan Eagles in the Clare Valley wine district and scored a goal in his first game back. 

Mr Sandow has also returned to his job as a carpenter where he uses a prosthetic limb. 

He hopes his story can be a warning for younger people about the dangers of drink driving.
