Boy Has Amazing Recovery After Burns Left Him Unable To Walk

WEST HILLS, Calif. (KTLA) — An 11-year-old boy who was brought to the U.S. for treatment years after being burned by a relative in Uganda shared his amazing recovery with the public Wednesday.

Adolf Baguma was burned at the age of five by a relative as a punishment for stealing food.

Adolf was left untreated for years as the skin on his legs fused together, leaving him unable to walk upright.

A Los Angeles attorney found Baguma in an orphanage in Uganda and arranged for his treatment at the Grosman Burn Center in West Hills.

Doctors announced Wednesday that Adolf is walking again thanks to two successful surgeries.

Adolf and his guardian are living with a host family in Thousand Oaks.
