Life after 615 – the recovery blog of John Caughlin


As you probably remember, John Caughlin lost most of his right arm and thumb and index finger on his left hand, after being hit by a boat (without propeller guard) during the Maui Channel swim on September 3rd 2011. Life after 615 is a blog about this new challenge of his, named so because they actually had finished the race in 6 hours and 15 minutes, when the boat ran him over. Via HalfMoonBayPatch, family and friends have set up this PayPal donation website so well-wishers can donate to his medical expenses.
