VIDEO: Inspring – Alex Minsky

A 24 year old US Marine who lost his leg in a near-fatal accident in Afghanistan has landed a new career as a male model.

Alex Minsky, 24, from Venice Beach, California, who was honored with the Purple Heart, nearly died and spent 47 days in a coma after his truck ran over a roadside bomb.

Three years on, after a battle with depression and alcoholism, Mr Minsky is now an up-and-coming face on the fashion scene and photographer’s muse.
