7 Year-Old Amputee Enjoys New Blade [Prosthesis] in School Playground



7 Year-Old Amputee Enjoys New Blade [Prosthesis] in School Playground

uTube vid (41 seconds)

A seven-year-old was given the warmest welcome into the school playground as she wore her sports blade for the first time.

Little Anu was forced to have her right leg amputated shortly after birth and has been wearing a prosthetic leg every day.

But her new sports blade was made especially for her needs, allowing her to run around and dance freely.

BBC Midlands Today tweeted a video of the reaction she received when her school friends saw her blade with the caption: "Anu is seven and goes to school in Birmingham.

"Look what happened when she showed her friends her new sports blade. It's just gorgeous!"

I saw that earlier. It was heart-warming to watch her being greeted by friends.

A lovely, heart warming little video.

I do not understand though - why is something that looks so weird better than something that looks like a normal leg?

Prothestics are so clever these days - and people with 'normal' looking legs have achieved so much. Douglas Badar even flew Spitfires in his - and didn't someone take part in "Strictly come dancing" using one?
Why give a child something so ugly.
