Chef Eduardo Garcia went for a hike in the beautiful backcountry of Montana. Literally shocked when he touched a dead bear with his knife, he survived the 2400V jolt and walked out alive. Nearly two dozen surgeries take his left hand, four ribs, and significant muscle mass from his torso, legs, arms, and scalp. Despite all his loss, Eduardo says he would never go back. Charged tells Eduardo's journey from getting up off the forest floor to becoming the man he is today.

Awe inspiring story of a human ability to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds.
10 May 2018 | by notom-23012See all my reviews

This is a tale of one mans recovery from horrific injuries. It's a truly inspirational film - a must see for anyone who believes that THEY can't do it!

One small aside - why does IMDBs 'Storyline' say: "..he touched a dead bear with his knife, he survived the 2400V jolt " ??
