Rusul received expert prosthetic treatment at Shriner’s Hospital in Greenville, South Carolina. In this video, she walks on her new leg for the first time. Special thanks again to Ed Skewes, who fitted Rusul and her sister Salee with prostheses.

Rusul’s leg was mangled in the US air strike that killed her brother and another young child. At the time the missile struck, the children were playing hopscotch outside Rusul’s home.
