Man with a Miracle
Monday, July 9, 2007
He survived against all the odds; now Peng Shulin has astounded doctors by learning to walk again.
When his body was cut in two by a lorry in 1995, it was little short of a medical miracle that he lived.
Peng Shulin, wearing new trainers, works on learning to walk again
It took a team of more than 20 doctors to save his life.
Skin was grafted from his head to seal his torso ? but the legless Mr Peng was left only 78cm (2ft 6in) tall.
Bedridden for years, doctors in China had little hope that he would ever be able to live anything like a normal life agan.
The bionic legs mimic the way Peng's limbs would have worked
But recently, he began exercising his arms, building up the strength to carry out everyday chores such as washing his face and brushing his teeth.
Doctors at the China Rehabilitation Research Centre in Beijing found out about Mr Peng's plight late last year and devised a plan to get him up walking again.
