Young amputee gets help during triathlon.
« on: October 11, 2012, 06:53:44 AM »
This 11 year old boy broke his prosthetic leg during the 2012 Sea Turtle Triathlon in Pensacola. Local marines who we also running the race saw this and carried him the rest of the way, ensuring that he too crossed the finish line.

This is a random act of kindness.  That young boy didn't even have to ask.  The young Marine did what was right without having to think about it.  He is my hero!  annieg

There are still good people in the world who do care and we need more like them.
