Las Vegas illusionist Roy Horn has made another breakthrough following his vicious mauling by a tiger last year (03) - he's taken his first steps since the attack.

Horn, part of hit magic show SIEGFRIED AND ROY SHOW, was left on the brink of death after one of his tigers attacked him during a performance.

However, following the news the German star had begun to talk again a fortnight ago (30JAN04), Horn is now starting to get his mobility back.

Manager BERNIE YUMAN, who says Roy is "making huge strides" in his rehabilitation, says, "The most important thing is that Siegfried is really challenging him at what will require long-term rehab.

"They're enjoying these tiny triumphs. He's quite the miracle man. It's amazing."
