A former Royal Marine Commando has raised more than £50,000 for a military charity after he was caught falling over on camera.
Mark Ormrod MBE, a triple amputee who lost his legs and an arm in Afghanistan in 2007, was filmed while training to run 5km for charity.
A video of the former Royal Marine running and falling has now been watched by nearly 50,000 people on Instagram and it has inadvertently helped him raise funds for REORG.
REORG is a charity that aims to provide a platform for serving personnel, veteran and emergency services to learn the Brazilian art of jiu-jitsu.
Mr Ormrod’s original target for his challenge was £5,000, but he has now raised nearly £53,000.
The 37-year-old served for 10 years as a Royal Marines Commando.
On Christmas Eve 2007, he stood on and detonated an improvised explosive device halfway through a tour of Afghanistan.
He became the UK's first triple amputee to survive the conflict.
