Meet Ben Underwood. Bens eyes were removed resulting from cancer when he was 3. Yet, he plays basketball, rides on a bicycle, and lives a quite normal life. He taught himself to use echo location to navigate around the world. With no guide-dogs, he doesn’t even need hands: he uses sound. Amazingly, his ears pick up the ecos to let him know where the objects are. He’s the only person in the world who sees using nothing but eco location, like a sonar or a dolphin. Ben sadly lost his fight with cancer in 2009 but his remarkable God given ability still serves as an inspiration to many.
