Footballer Who Survived Colombia Plane Crash Takes His First Steps Since The Disaster
Brazilian Helio Neto was one of just six people pulled alive from the wreckage of the jet which crashed down in November, killing 71 - including most of the Chapecoense football team.
New images by Daily Mail, show the 31-year-old, who was reading a Bible extract before the plane went down on its approach to the city of Medellin, walking around without using crutches.
He smiles at his success in the video, which has been shared thousands of times in his homeland.
He said later: 'I think I will be able to play again soon. With the help of God, I will be on the field soon with the Chapecoense shirt.'
Many of Neto's teammates and other team staff were killed when LaMia flight 2933 came down in Colombia on November 28.
