Angel Colón was shot 6 times during the Orlando attack.
Just two months after the tragic shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Fla., one of the survivors has finally started walking on his own. In a video posted to Facebook, Angel Colón takes eight steps in his kitchen, to a loving and welcoming embrace. Despite not being able to walk for two months after the attack, Colón was seen a few weeks ago at the annual Zumba Fitness Conference.
Colón also posted this emotional status to mark the two-month anniversary of the shooting.
Today marks 2 months of the shooting at Pulse Orlando. It was the worst night of my life and will never forget. The past…
Way to go, Angel! You got this.

Colón is one of the 53 people injured in the Pulse Nightclub shooting in the early morning hours of June 12. He was hugging a friend and saying his goodbyes at the end of the night as the attack began. The Zumba instructor was shot several times in the leg and hip before being dragged to safety by a police officer.
