Acrobat Kristina Vorobeva has been transferred to a rehabilitation center and continues to recover well after she fell 10 meters in the Amsterdam theater Carre during a circus performance in January. She can now move her legs slightly and hopes to be able to walk again. She credits her recovery to her husband, Rustem Osmanov. "Without him I would not have made it," she said in an interview with the Telegraaf.

But at the moment, I cannot feel my legs," she wrote on Facebook.
