Adrianne Haslet shared a photo on Instagram showing herself lying in a hospital bed Sunday after being hit Saturday while crossing a street in Boston.
“Struck by a car on Commonwealth Avenue, while on a crosswalk,” the caption read. “Thrown into the air and landed, crushing the left side of my body. Yesterday. I’m completely broken. More surgery to come.”
Though her left leg was amputated below the knee, Haslet was determined to dance again ― and she did.
Just 200 days after the attack, Haslet danced the rumba with a prosthetic lower leg during the TED Talk of MIT Media Lab director Hugh Herr.
Haslet had met Herr, a double amputee who specializes in bionics, while recovering in the hospital after the bombing.
