Blind Mechanic At The Job

A blind mechanic fixes cars using just touch to tell what is wrong with them.
Dutchman Col Collewijn lost his eyesight when he was eight – but has incredibly learned how to repair motors.
The remarkable mechanic said: "As long as my tools are in the right place and no screws drop to the ground I get along alone very well."
Collewijn, who has worked in a garage in Nuis, Holland, for 30 years, said: "I do everything by trusting my senses and my hearing.
"And I have one big advantage over other mechanics - I can repair cars in the dark."
