Oksana, 23, a nurse from the eastern city of Lysychansk in Ukraine, lost both her legs when a landmine exploded under her, and she is now filmed dancing with her new husband Victor. The bride lost her legs and four fingers on her left hand after a mine exploded under her in the eastern city of Lysychansk, on March 27.
“I am 23 and I worked at the children’s hospital as a nurse in the neurology department. I have two children, a boy Illia and a girl Diana, and I have a wonderful husband. Probably because of him I am optimistic about life and continue to live. On March 27, I hit a mine. My husband, our friend, and I were going home and we wanted to take as shortcut to go near the river. I have known this trail for a long time because I have been walking there since childhood. I walked a little ahead. I saw a shell sticking out of the ground and wanted to warn him. I turned halfway and just managed to shout “Dear, look.” He looked, and I flew up. I fell face down on the ground. I heard an incredible rumble in my head. Then I rolled over and started trying to tear my clothes. It seemed to me that I did not have enough air. Viktor immediately ran to give me first aid. Then the ambulance came, they said that they would not be able to take me out of there and would wait for the emergency rescuers. But Viktor did not agree, and he and my stepfather brought me to the ambulance.” – said Oksana
