A toddler whose feet were amputated after her father accidentally backed over her with a riding lawnmower had a special meeting with her hero.
Ireland Nugent has often been seen clutching a stuffed animal of Winter, the dolphin with a prosthetic tail, in her wheelchair since the April 11 accident.
She even carried the toy with her when she left the hospital nearly a month after the accident.
On Saturday, she got to meet the real Winter the dolphin.
Bay News 9 reports she initially cried, but soon reached out and touched the mammal.
Winter lost her tail to a crab trap and has become an ambassador to those who have lost limbs.
Ireland underwent seven surgeries and will be fitted for prosthetic feet in the coming weeks.
