6-year-old Alex Pring was born with a limb deficiency that left him without the lower part of his right arm…
And while he fought for a normal kid's life of playing sports and climbing outside — he knew the possibilities of him actually doing those things were slim to none.
That is, until the University of Central Florida gifted Alex with a 3D-printed prosthetic limb that's capable of reading muscle movements from the upper arm for functionality.
We send our sincerest sympathies and prayers to their family members.

Another tragic plane crash has occurred, this time off the coast of Taiwan.
TransAsia Flight GE222 was attempting to make an emergency landing when it crashed in the Penghu Island city of Magong. 51 or the 58 passengers and crew members were killed.
Pilots in the plane were reportedly trying to take the aircraft down safely due to bad weather caused by Typhoon Matmo, which slammed into the Asian nation on Wednesday. Civil aviation chief Shen Chi spoke about the crash today saying:
Either the borough of Brooklyn is surrendering to Manhattan or there are some VERY sneaky pranksters running around New York right now!
City police are absolutely stumped how anyone was able to climb the Brooklyn Bridge and replace the two American flags that normally fly atop the landmark’s towers with two white flags!
Authorities today revealed that surveillance video captured a group of four or five people walking onto the bridge around 3AM early Monday morning.
Then, at around 3:30AM, the lights that usually illuminate the top of the bridge suddenly flickered and then went out completely!
As the sun rose over the East River, construction workers noticed the white flags flying above the Brooklyn Bridge at 5:30AM. That’s when police became involved.
NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton spoke about the incident at a press conference, saying:
So remember when Nancy Grace told a father whose son was missing that they found him… in his own basement (above)?
Well, this story just got A LOT worse.
The Department of Human Services has filed a petition against the father, Charles Bothuell IV, and the step-mother, Monique Dillard-Bothuell, for EXTREME abuse against their 12-year-old son, Charles "Charlie" Bothuell V.
