One of the car's occupants was killed, and Harris was pulled from the vehicle by a volunteer firefighter who was alerted of the accident.
He was airlifted to The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, but he was not supposed to live.
He was left with a closed head injury to his brain as a result of the crash.
Harris discovered that although undergoing physical therapy to encourage him to walk again, he discovered that he could also swim well.
He earned a silver medal in the 100 meters freestyle S7 and was a member of the 4 x 100 m freestyle 34 pts relay team, which also received a silver medal.
