TAMPA, FLORIDA- A toddler who lost her feet when her father accidentally backed over her with a riding lawn mower took her first steps with new prosthetic legs. Ireland Nugent has had seven surgeries since the accident in April and was confined to a wheelchair. She was fitted with her new legs and started walking right away. When the technician told her he would need the limbs back for a better fitting, Ireland told him she wanted to keep them. Her father recorded the first steps and says he was speechless and proud.
