 Documentary on Man With Half a Body
Kenny Easterday's body ends at his waist. He was born with a rare condition called sacral agenesis which prevented his spine from developing normally. He is a 35-year-old American man with half a body has become the subject of a new documentary.

Doctors had amputated his legs when he was six-months-old and used part of his shinbone to complete his partially formed spine, reports The Telegraph.

During childhood, Kenny was offered prosthetic legs but he disliked the idea, and preferred to use his hands or a skateboard to get around.

"My dad pretty much taught me how to walk on my hands," said Easterday, from West Virginia, USA.

Speaking in a documentary for TLC in the USA titled The Man With Half a Body, his father said: "I just told him to walk behind his mother, because she walks like a duck so just walk like her."

"I should be dead now, the doctor gave me until I was 21. I'm 35 now," he said.

He is divorced from his first wife Sarah but is now engaged to Nicky, 33, who has two young children. Kenny has always hoped to be a father.
