Brazilian Model Paola Antonini Inspires Fans On Instagram After Losing Leg In Car Crash


Paola Antonini, a 21-year-old Brazilian model who lost her left leg has become an Instagram sensation thanks to support from hundreds of thousands of fans and an air of inspiration surrounding her. She lost her leg in 2014 after being hit by a drunken driver in a car accident.

Her leg was crushed, and despite four attempts to save the leg, it was decided that her leg needed to be amputated at the knee. While Antonini started learning to walk again, she was advised by medical professionals that she should have a second amputation, cutting off her leg to above the knee, according to the Daily Mail.

Antonini told Brazilian website VejaBJ that she chose to look at the situation from a glass-half-full perspective, instead of wallowing over what she lost in the accident.

“Between being unhappy forever and thankful for being alive, I chose the second option,” she said.
