Wilmington Cub Scout pack builds prosthetic hand for fellow scout

WILMINGTON, MASS. (WHDH) - A Cub Scout pack helped their fellow scout by building him a prosthetic hand.

Frankie Grieco, 9, was born with only one hand. Eighteen of his fellow Cub Scouts worked with a non-profit group called E-Nable, which makes robotics to create prosthetic hands using a 3-D printer. The pack made four prosthetic hands for children, including one for Frankie.

“It feels pretty cool and amazing that I finally got my hand,” said Frankie. He said he looks forward to riding his bicycle and scooter with his new hand.

“They’re learning they can make a difference in the world and do good,” said Frankie’s mother, Rachel Grieco.
