See more from National Geographic's Short Film Showcase at Get More National Geographic: Official Site: Facebook: Twitter: Instagram: David Miti was born in 1966 in Zambia?s Eastern province where he built a career as a truck driver and a carpenter. Then, at age 34, his life changed forever. ?The day started with a fever,? Miti recalls. ?I went to a hospital and got medicine, but after I went home I discovered a blister on my left leg. Then after some hours there was another blister on the other leg. Then my legs turned black.? Mr. Miti was diagnosed with gangrene, a condition in which body tissue dies due to a lack of blood supply. To save Miti?s life, doctors had to amputate both legs. ?It pained me? says Miti. ?I nearly committed suicide. I thought that my life had ended.? But it hadn?t. Instead, Miti found an opportunity to leverage his disability by giving back to those in similar positions to him. Miti started working for the Zambian Association for Children with Disabilities, where he uses his carpentry skills to build devices for disabled children. Now, he has the opportunity to walk thanks to a pair of prosthetic legs. Filmmaker Austin Meyer documents Miti's first steps in this short film. Follow Austin Meyer: About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure. Through their world-class scientists, photographers, journalists, and filmmakers, Nat Geo gets you closer to the stories that matter and past the edge of what's possible.
