Girl Told She’d Never Walk Again Takes Miracle First Steps


A girl who fell into a scalding hot bath has taken her first steps – seven years after doctors said she’d never walk again.

Miracle Tilly Sawford, from Bilborough, Nottingham, received fourth degree burns to 86 per cent of her body after a dodgy boiler burned the tot alive.

Tilly, now aged nine, was given just five per cent chance of survival after the horror accident when she was 15 months old.

But over 500 operations and seven years later, Tilly has taken her first steps after having her leg amputated in January this year.

Proud mum Emma Sawford ‘cried’ as she watched her daughter take four steps on her prosthetic without the support of her frame.

The 30-year-old said: “She only got her prosthetic in June this year.

“I’m so proud of her, she’s so inspirational.”
