London attack victim stands on her own after broken leg

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) " The Utah woman who suffered a broken leg from a high-profile London attack is now able to stand up on her own.

Melissa Cochran's brother Clint Payne on Saturday posted a photo of her on a verified GoFundMe website account.

It shows her smiling and standing up, holding her crutches in the air.

It was captioned with this quote: "What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you."

Cochran also suffered a broken rib and cuts to the head during the March 22 attack.

Her husband, Kurt Cochran, was killed when a man in an SUV mowed down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge.

The couple was on the last day of a European trip celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary.
