A GIRL born with her legs back to front has walked for the first time.
The one-in-a-million condition meant that Victoria Komada’s legs were deformed with missing bones.
SWNS:South West News Service Victoria Komada, 3, born with her legs back to front, can now walk independently like any other toddler

Doctors said the three-year-old faced losing both limbs to the condition — known as bilateral tibial hemimelia.
But her parents raised £180,000 for surgery in the US and she can now walk, run and play sport.
Victoria, mum Marzena Drusewicz, 32, and dad Dariusz Komada, 41, returned to Norwich on Monday after two ops and nine months of rehab in Florida.
Marzena, originally from Poland, said: “She was in a lot of pain all day and all night.
“We had all had enough. It was horrible.
“Now she is not in any pain at all and can walk normally and we can all start our life again.
‘WE CAN START OUR LIFE AGAIN’
“We were so happy when she took her first steps we started crying.
“We were on the way to the car and she said mummy, can I show you something?”
Victoria’s right leg was amputated above the knee and pins put into her left leg, before a fixator was attached.

Screws were twisted into her legs every day to move the bones into the right position.
Her second operation saw the bones in the left leg fused together for strength. Just two days later Victoria could walk.
Surgeon Dr Dror Paley said: “She can walk and run and do sports now. She has a superb result.”
