Op dad left with no fear
A DAD-of-two who was scared of heights has become a daredevil after having his adrenalin gland removed to leave him with no fear.
Jordy Cernik, 42, now skydives and abseils and has been labelled one of the top 10 real-life superheroes by websites around the world.
He suffers from Cushing’s syndrome which causes high levels of cortisol.
To treat the condition, Jordy underwent a series of brain operations and two procedures to remove his adrenal glands.
Jordy, of Jarrow, Tyne and Wear, said: “When I’m standing on top of a tower or about to jump I know I should feel fear.
“But the message is just not getting through from my brain.”
