Child receives prosthesis and hugs brother for the first time

Jacob is five years old and was born prematurely, missing most of his left arm.

Gemma Turner and Chris Scrimshaw have raised about € 18,000 so that their son could have a personalized prosthetic arm.

The arm was designed by Ben Ryan, a former psychology professor who resigned to start a denture company after his son was amputated 10 days after he was born.

The result could not have been more satisfactory.

Jacob received a green, superhero-inspired prosthesis and was able to hug his brother for the first time.
