Info: Eva was 15 years old when she and her aunt got involved in an accident. They were going on a motorcycle, tried to pass a minibus, got thrown to the ground and when tried to get up, a truck coming from behind crashed over them. Her aunt died. Eva ended up with her right leg amputated. The video was recorded 15 days after the accident. Her mother Lorena kept a positive attitude the whole time, just like Eva. They used music and dance as a way to overcome Eva's physical pain. Eva became a Colombian icon of courage and overcoming. Nowadays they're trying to go to Germany to have a new prosthesis and do rehab.
