PENSACOLA, FL – It’ll make your heart melt more than Rudy.
A Florida 11-year-old, who had his fibula and tibia removed after being diagnosed with bone cancer, won’t let anything hold him down.
Ben Baltz just took on a triathlon.
He successfully completed the 150 yard swim and 4 mile bike, but then half way through the one mile run his prosthetic leg snapped in half.
As he lay on the ground, Private First Class Matthew Morgan came by and scooped him up. Surrounded by fellow marines, Morgan carried Baltz to the finish.
This kid has overcome major adversity. We say he’s a winner any way you slice it.
