A Boston Marathon survivor has a new leg almost a year after being seriously hurt in the attack.

Jane Richard, 8, lost her leg in the explosions last April.

Her 8-year-old brother Martin was killed.

Her family says her new leg is a "cheetah" running leg, designed for athletics and for everyday use.

The leg is a gift from an organization called "Wiggle Your Toes" and her team at United Prosthetics who built it.
