Teenage model Katrina Burgess is the ultimate pin-up girl — her body is literally held together by pins.

The victim of a car crash, Katrina, 17, has been signed by top agency just months after doctors feared she would be paralyzed.

Katrina was in a car that ploughed into a ditch in January and she needed 11 titanium rods put in her broken neck, back and left leg.

She amazed doctors by taking her first steps just days after the final surgery.

Soon after seeing her photos on the Internet, London's BASE Models got in touch with Katrina and signed her to the agency.
