VIDEO: LAPD Officer Back on Patrol After Foot Amputated

Less than a year ago, LAPD Officer Marcial Cruz agonized he’d never be on patrol again. Doctors had removed a tumor on the bottom of his left foot. When it turned out to be cancer they were forced to amputate, reports CBS LA.

Wearing a new prosthetic foot made with Kevlar, Cruz said he got into the best shape of his life so he could prove he could get back out in the field.

Six months after losing his left foot, Officer Cruz was handed a certificate showing he had passed the department’s physical tests with flying colors. And he was immediately reinstated back to full duty.

Cruz has been back in the field for more than a month. His captain said Cruz proves his disability is not a setback.
