Article Photos: Haitian amputee makes comeback on dance floor 9/11

In this July 20, 2012 photo, professional dancer Georges Exantus puts a ring on the finger of his bride Sherly Henrisme Exantus at their 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. 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. A prosthetic leg doesn’t hold him back. Exantus says he’s the same person he was before the Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake struck southern Haiti. (AP Photo/Dieu Nalio Chery)
