A young father who lost four limbs and half his face to a flesh-eating bug has recalled the devastating moment his son looked at him and recoiled in horror.
Alex Lewis was left fighting for his life after a common cold triggered a strep A infection, blood poisoning and toxic shock syndrome.
Doctors gave him a three per cent chance of survival, but the 35-year-old battled against the odds to make a remarkable recovery.
Over the past two years he has endured countless gruelling operations to rebuild his face and learned how to walk again with prosthetics.
Now, his extraordinary story will be told in a new documentary which begins filming just days after he was almost eaten alive.
