Boston Marathon Bombing Survivor Dances Again

CANADA - You might say a Boston marathon survivor is getting back in the swing of things.

Adrianne Haslet-Davis is a professional dancer whose left leg was partially amputated.

On Wednesday, she returned to the dance floor for the first time at the "International TED Conference" in Vancouver, Canada.

She danced a rumba on a specially-made prosthetic dancing leg.

It was designed by Hugh Herr who works at the MIT media lab.

Haslet-Davis said dancing again was a reminder that she's a survivor, not a victim.

She hopes her comeback will inspire others to reach their goals and be proactive in their lives.
