STAMFORD - A Haitian woman who lost her leg in the devastating earthquake last January in Haiti is receiving help from Stamford Hospital.

Matine Volcimus says she was buried under rubble in her church for 30 minutes before rescuers dug her out. Her leg was amputated in Haiti a few days later.

Volcimus' sister says Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn.) helped bring her to Stamford for physical therapy and a prosthetic leg.

Doctors say within a few weeks, Volcimus has become much more successful at using the prosthetic leg. They also say her positive attitude is inspiring.
