An amputee from birth

The above bizarre concept was repeated over and over again on CBS news the other day. The announcer was speaking of an "amputee" who had nevertheless triumphed over his disability to become an EMT. She would then add "he was born with this condition."

I guess they are amputating limbs in the womb these days. Or perhaps she actually meant that he was born with only one leg.
