Little Girl Bravely Faces Friends Wearing New Prosthetic Leg In Viral Video

By Aimee Lutkin

Nothing like a good cry in the middle of the week, right?  A 7-year-old girl named Anu from the UK walked boldly onto the playground sporting a brand new prosthetic. In the video that's gone viral of Anu's arrival, you can see her friends gather around her and stare at her leg curiously. 

"Is that your new pink leg?" asks one friend. After a moment, one of the little girls spontaneously hugs her, and then the awkward moment passes and they start running around and walking hand in hand with her as she explores a familiar area with a new perspective. 

Yes, I am sobbing and so are you, admit it. Anu had her right leg amputated soon after she was born, The Telegraph reports, and the new pink blade allows her to jump and run and dance in a way she couldn't before. These sorts of blades got a £1.5 million funding grant in 2016, allowing researchers to develop “child sports prosthetics."
