Rockers Muse have recruited amputee Lauren Wasser for their new Dig Down video.

The model and activist, who lost a leg to toxic shock syndrome, battles her way out of a building under attack in the new Lance Drake promo, at one point crawling across the floor, piecing her prosthetic leg and foot back together before taking on an army of assailants.

"We wanted this sort of story of catching a person going through some kind of real major struggle on screen but also like finding a person who's actually been through a real struggle in real life to play that part," Muse frontman Matt Bellamy tells Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio. "And so somehow we've got all these parts to come together and we found this amazing, amazing lady."
