Flesh-eating bacteria victim returns home

Posted: Updated:

The college student who suffered from a flesh eating bacteria and lost parts of all her limbs has finally made it back to her home in Snellville, Georgia.

Aimee Copeland spent her first night at home Wednesday night. The 24-year old has been through extensive surgeries and physical therapy. She has three new prosthetics: Two hooks for hands and a prosthetic leg.

Copeland contracted the bacteria in May when she fell near an Atlanta-area river and received a gash in her leg.
