Girl Lost Her Legs And Six Fingers Due To Chernobyl Disaster And She Is A Fitness Model Now

Tatsiana Khvitsko was not even born when the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Tragedy took place in which many parts of Eastern Europe were exposed to the radiation. We have seen similar after-effects in past of the bombings over Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan and then during the Bhopal gas tragedy in India. Tatsiana however, refused to behave like a victim and did something that seemed to be impossible.

The story of this girl will not take you towards the darkness and sadness, but to a very positive outlook towards life.
