See how love helped this Navy hero recover after he lost his limbs
They say love conquers all, and the story of Taylor Morris and his girlfriend, Danielle, is proof. While leading forces through dangerous terrain in Afghanistan last May, the Cedar Falls, Iowa, native stepped on an IED, instantly blasting all four limbs from his body. He somehow survived and made it back to the U.S. where he began a rehabilitation process. The process was grueling yet, with Danielle firmly by his side, the 23-year-old managed to get released from the hospital, fitted with prosthetic limbs, begin walking again and -- defying all odds -- dance at a friend's wedding. All in four short months.
