Paralysed Malaysian Man Fixes Motorcycles From Bed For A Living
Life is full of surprises, and while a paralysing injury is a terrible one, it can also unlock great strength and resourcefulness in someone.
For a Malaysian man who became bedridden after an accident, that was certainly the case as he has turned his place of rest into a workspace.
Despite being paralysed from the waist down, he fixes motorcycles from his bed for a living.
With help from his brother, he is able to continue pursuing his passion of being a mechanic.
Man became paralysed after getting into accident at 19
Mohamad Zulkarnain Mustafa was only 19 when he got into an accident that robbed him of the ability to walk.
According to Harian Metro, he was on the way home from working at a fried chicken stall in a night market in 2015 when his life changed forever.
Back then, he was working two jobs to help lighten his parents’ financial burden.
In addition to working at the night market, he also ran a part-time motorcycle repair business from home.
Following the accident, the now 27-year-old Mr Zulkarnain rested for a year before picking up his tools once again.
Due to his condition and limited mobility, he now does most of the repair work lying down in bed.

While Mr Zulkarnain can also sit in a wheelchair, doing so for more than two hours can cause him discomfort and abdominal pain.
As such, he finds it more comfortable to work while lying down.
Additionally, he gets help from various family members in different ways.
For instance, his family moves his bed to the front of the house whenever a customer’s motorcycle comes in for repairs.
His younger brother, 13-year-old Mohamad Hazarul Nizam, also assists him by opening up the motorcycle parts for repair.
Besides that, he is also capable of reassembling them, as well as replacing tyres, chains, and engine oil.
