Tucson amputee meets dolphin with prosthetic tail

Posted: Updated:

A dream trip for a local high school student will end up having some real-world benefits for her.

Amputee Kristine Hodgkinson, 15, lost her left leg due to complications from premature birth.

She traveled to Florida earlier this month and met Winter, a dolphin who lost her tail due to an injury.

That inspiring encounter also let her meet a world-famous designer of prosthetics who's offered to make her a new leg.
