John Ssaybunnya, from Uganda, who is participating in the Special Olympics in Ireland was partially raised by Vervet monkeys. He witnessed the murder of his mother at the age of three and fled into the jungle.
Traumatised by the horror of what he had seen, he fled into the jungle. And there he should have died, but he didn't.
He survived because he was adopted by a troupe of African Green monkeys who fed him and raised him as their own.
Three years later, in 1991, a tribeswoman saw him scavenging for food with the monkeys and reported it to the people of her village.
