Watch 1st steps: Determined 2-year-old takes off in his walker after amputations

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

A young boy who had his right foot and left leg amputated is learning to walk again with the help of prostheses.

Kayden Kinckle, now 2, was born with his intestines, liver and bladder outside his body.

His mother also discovered that the umbilical cord was wrapped around his legs in the womb and her baby was given little chance of survival.

But look at Kayden now! Like a typical two-year old he wants to do it all by himself. Listen as he repeats, “I got it…. I got it,” and walks tirelessly.

This Youtube video says it was posted by his mother, and shows him taking his first steps with a walker, after surgery.

His family is raising money to pay for medical costs, future physical therapy, braces and prosthetics.
