With all surviving odds against him, Peng Shulins body was cut in half by a large transport truck in 1995, leaving his doctors shocked and amazed by his survival. Not only is it a miracle that he has lived to tell the tale, hes now learning to walk again.

It took a team of more than 20 doctors working feverishly to save his life.

Skin was grafted from his head to close his torso up, but h More..is lower body could not be saved leaving him to stand a full 2 feet 6 inches (78 centimeters) in height.

After being bedridden for years, doctors in China didnt have very much hope that he would ever be able to lead any form of a normal life again, reports

Peng began exercising his arms and building his strength up to carry out daily routine chores, empowering him to do things such as washing his face and brushing his teeth.

When doctors at the China Rehabilitation Research Centre in Beijing found out about Pengs quandry, they teamed together to devise a program to get him walking once more.

They came up with an ingenious way to allow him to walk on his own merit by creating a sophisticated egg cup-like casing to hold his body with two bionic legs attached to it.

With the aid of his uniquely adapted legs and resized walking frame, Peng has been taking his first steps around the centre.

Peng is thrilled with his device, and the opportunity it affords him to learn to walk again.

The video and the story are two separate incidents.
Video is from Vietnam and the miracle story is from China. Rob, those are two different countries in case you didn't know.
