Scott Martin: Life after Flesh-Eating Disease (Rebroadcast)

Scott Martin was in the prime of his life: coaching college soccer and living his dream.  Then he started feeling tired.  He went into shock, and his organs shut down.  Scott had contracted flesh-eating disease.  After a month-long coma, and amputations to both hands and feet, Scott found himself on the long road to recovery. He thought his life was over - but it was what happened afterwards that really took him by surprise.  Scott Martin shares his story. Originally aired 1/5/12.
