Daniel escaped unscathed but Krystal was told that her arm would need to be amputated after she was airlifted to hospital. Krystal – who trains in CrossFit, a discipline that combines weightlifting, gymnastics and cardio and still managed to find the courage to get back to the gym just three weeks later.
