Haitian amputee makes comeback on dance floor

In this July 20, 2012 photo, professional dancer Georges Exantus prepares to put on his prosthetic limb in his bedroom as he prepares for his wedding in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Exantus thought he’d never dance again. The earthquake three years ago in Haiti’s capital flattened the apartment where he was living, where he spent three days trapped under a heap of jagged rubble. After friends dug him out, doctors amputated his right leg just below the knee. Israeli doctors and physical therapists who came to Haiti after the quake sent him to Israel for surgery and rehabilitation. Three years later, the 32-year-old professional dancer is back on the floor, spinning away as he does the salsa, cha-cha and samba.
