A court ruled a double amputee has permission to climb Mt. Everest, according to a Monday report.

Hari Budha Magar, 39, a British war veteran having lost both legs after stepping on a bomb in Afghanistan in 2010, now has permission from the Nepalese court to climb Mt. Everest, Fox News reported. The Nepalese Supreme Court previously ruled in December 2017 people without legs, people who were legally blind, and solo climbers could not climb Mt. Everest to cut down on the deaths from climbing the highest peak in the world.
