From Tragedy To Triumph: Little Ireland Walks

Posted: Updated:

2-year-old Ireland Nugent has been in a wheelchair since April.

Ireland's feet were amputated after her dad accidentally backed over her with the lawnmower.

She underwent 7 surgeries and yesterday, she took her first steps with her new prosthetic legs.

Her dad calls her his "superhero."
