First unaided steps for TV reporter who lost leg in accident

Here’s your daily dose of sweetness:

Last September, Fox 9 reporter Courtney Godfrey lost part of her leg while boating on Christmas Lake. The boat’s propeller took her foot off; doctors had to amputate her leg.

“I may have lost a leg, but I’m still me. I’m not going to let this get me down,” she said shortly after.

And she didn’t.

Today she walked unaided, she said on Twitter.

She said last week all she wants out of the ordeal now is to give one person hope.

    I talked to her as soon as I heard about the accident about the “Wiggle Your Toes” organization. By that time, WYT was already modifying her home for her new life. I look forward to Ms. Godfrey having a long and successful career here.
