MOORE HAVEN, Fla. - A southwest Florida teenager who lost part of his right arm to an alligator attack has been fitted for a bionic hand.
The News-Press reports that Kaleb 'Fred' Langdale chose a custom camouflage design because he loves hunting, airboating and the outdoors.
Langdale was attacked by the gator while swimming in the Caloosahatchee River with friends.
The teen is one of the first in the world to receive the new technology. He is the first U.S. recipient.
The state-of-the-art prosthetic was recently revealed at the U.S. at the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Academy's National Meeting in Boston.
