A Ukrainian nurse who lost both legs when she stepped on a Russian mine has married her husband in a hospital.

 

The 23-year-old nurse was on her way home with her now-husband Viktor in Lysychansk on March 27, when she stepped on the explosive.

 

The blast happened in a split second and while Viktor was left unharmed, Oksana lost both of her legs and four fingers on her left hand in the explosion, the Lviv Medical Association said.

 

She has undergone four operations to stabilise her injuries before going to Lviv to have prosthetics fitted.

The pair, who have two children, have now tied the knot in a heartwarming hospital ceremony before the bride was fitted for new limbs.
