ORLANDO (FOX 13) -

Little Ireland Nugent has her first fitting this morning for her prosthetic legs.

Ireland lost both feet in a lawnmower accident earlier this year. Her family spent last night in Orlando, where Ireland is having her fitting this morning.

Doctors are taking plaster casts of her legs, and those casts will be used to make custom liners to keep the prosthetics in place.

When those liners are finished, the family will head back to Orlando, where Ireland will try on several different prosthetics to figure out what fits best.

FOX 13's Gloria Gomez is there and will have updates later in the day.
