How These Girls Reacted To A Friend's Prosthetic Will Melt Your Heart

Many on Twitter were moved by the footage, in which a young girl in the United Kingdom wears her new prosthetic leg to the playground in the presence of her friends.

A young girl in Birmingham, England, has new gear to show off — and her friends love it. 

Anu, 7, had her leg amputated after she was born, The Independent reports. She has a new pink prosthetic leg, thanks to support from the West Midlands Rehabilitation Centre, ane she wore the leg to a school playground. 

Without the approximately $1.6 million funding boost to the National Health Service in 2016, Anu's new leg may never have been made possible.

In the viral clip below posted by BBC Midlands Today, Anu's playmates react to the prosthetic in the sweetest of manners.

The kids are incredulous of the leg. One innocently asks, "Is that your new pink leg?" 

The support they demonstrate is clear, as two of the girls hug Anu, and then the children race and hold hands with her around the schoolyard. 

The Twitter reactions are what you might expect.

Precious and priceless, indeed.
