As a result of his recent episode, Cheseto, a UAA student-athlete, experienced severe frostbite of his hands and feet. While his hands are expected to make a full recovery, damage to his lower extremities was so severe that it required amputation above the ankle on both legs. He is expected to remain in the hospital for some time as he continues his recovery and rehabilitation.
