Aimee Copeland's father on her recovery: 'She's determined to not be handicapped'

Aimee Copeland, the 24-year-old who lost a leg, a foot and both of her hands to a flesh-eating bacterial infection that almost killed her is defying the odds in her recovery.

Her grueling physical therapy sessions are now geared toward the basics, like getting in and out of a chair. She's also learning to work with new hand and leg prosthetics.

OutFront tonight, Aimee's father, Andy Copeland, who has been giving us regular updates on Aimee's progress.
