LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Local doctors give a crippled child from Africa a chance to live a normal life -- It took nearly a day of marathon surgery.

Kofi mother said a child with a disability in Africa would have no future. Because of an insect bite, the little boy from Ghana had a serious infection that would have led to amputation. But missionaries from Los Angeles heard his story and brought him here for the limb-saving surgery.

The day after a 20-hour marathon surgery to repair his right leg, 5-year-old Kofi gets an okay from doctors. One good sign is that his blood flow is normal.
