Little Girl Wears New Prosthetic Leg. Her Friends Have The Best Reactions

"That's your new pink leg?" one of her friends asks before hugging her.


NEW DELHI:  A heartwarming video of a little girl and her wonderful friends has touched a chord with thousands of people online. The video, shared by BBC Midlands Today on Twitter, shows Anu, a seven-year-old from Birmingham, walking into school wearing her brand new prosthetic leg. What follows is the most heartening thing you may have ever seen. The clip shows Anu's friends running to embrace her. Since being shared on May 3, the video has collected over 68,000 'likes' and more than 41,000 retweets so far.

According to an earlier video shared by BBC Midlands Today, Anu had to have her leg amputated shortly after she was born. And while she earlier had another prosthetic leg, her new one, a pink sports blade, helps her "run faster and do street dancing faster."

The clip that's now gone viral captures the exact moment Anu walks into school wearing her new sports blade for the first time. "That's your new pink leg?" one of her friends asks her. "Wow!" exclaims another. Some of them also give Anu big hugs. She is later shown running around the playground with one of her friends.
 
The heartwarming video is leaving many on social media teary eyed.

"I'm not crying, it's just allergies," says one commenter on the video. "Love this. What a heartwarming reaction," says another.

Here's what other tweeted:
 
According to BBC Midlands Today, Anu received the new blade after a special 1.5 million pounds funding following the Paralympics last year. However, with the funding running out, there is uncertainty if Anu's blade will be replaced as she grows.
