USA Today: Double Amputee fitted with a mermaid tail!

I love these sorts of stories where technology or craftsmanship suddenly allows a disabled person to be gloriously effective at sport. I just love it.

From USA Today:

"... A prosthetic is a prosthetic, and your body has to be comfortable with it and you have to mentally make it part of yourself," said Vessey, who has been swimming in a pool and Auckland Harbor.

"It was absolutely amazing," said costumer Lee Williams. "It's beautiful to watch Nadya swim and to see that dream come true and to be a part of that. I feel quite blessed. ..."
