Inspiring: Teen swimmer has arm amputated, returns to compete 1 month later


Tyler Brown’s family members were a little concerned about her jumping back into the water so soon after she had her arm amputated. Then, they gathered for her swim meet. They watched her compete and couldn’t believe what they were seeing.

The 14-year-old swimmer was holding her own in a competition.

“Man, I was crying,” father Jae Brown said.
