Albany Airport Firefighter Josh Woodward had another surgery on Wednesday to amputate the area below his right knee. His wife says the surgery went great!

Woodward already had to have his arm and parts of his feet amputated.


You may recall Woodward made a miraculous recovery from sepsis earlier this year.

He went into a coma and was given a five-percent chance to live.

Since then, his progress has already been remarkable. However, his wife, Chelsea, wrote on Facebook that doctors think he'll actually have a better quality of life with the surgery.
