(FOX NEWS) — A young woman decided to have her leg amputated after a simple stress fracture she suffered walking down a street wouldn’t heal.

Victoria Snell, 26, suffered the freak injury while strolling on the pavement after visiting a cinema – but has since been in and out of hospital for the last six years.

She underwent a total of four operations, having several bone grafts and metal plates installed, but nothing seemed to work.
