Resilient 11-year-old Waukesha dancer returns to perform after parade tragedy
WAUKESHA (CBS 58) -- After a turbulent past few months, Jessalyn Torres returned to the stage Saturday night.
Alongside her dance group, Waukesha's Xtreme Dance Team, she performed a partner dance routine less than 24 hours after having surgery on her trachea.
The recent trachea procedure was necessary because doctors discovered that she was only inhaling with 20% capacity - the equivalent of breathing through a straw.
CBS 58's Amanda Becker attended the performance, click here to see a brief clip. Stay tuned to CBS 58 for a complete story about Jessalyn's return to form.
