MENINGITIS BOY TAKES FIRST STEPS ON PROSTHETIC LIMBS

An eight-year-old boy who lost his legs and left hand to meningitis is standing tall after learning to walk on his prosthetic limbs. Despite receiving the meningitis C vaccination as a baby, Kye Vincent was diagnosed with meningococcal septicaemia earlier this year on Mother’s Day, just six days after his baby sister, Layla was born. The deadly illness ravaged his body and medics were forced to induce him into a coma to give him the best chance of survival. Thankfully, the plucky youngster has battled against the odds and is looking forward to spending Christmas with his family in his new adapted home.
