It’s a big victory for a teen with Down's syndrome; 15-year-old Eli Reimer became the first person with the disease to climb to the base camp of Mount Everest.

The trip was part of an effort to raise money and awareness for disabled children. Eli's father says when everyone else was dragging on, his son led the way to base camp.
