Marines Carry Boy Across Finish Line

Be warned that this is gonna make you want to cry.

Ben Baltz is an 11 year old boy who lost his leg to cancer but that hasn’t stopped him from competing in triathlons where he uses several different prosthetic legs.

While running the final part of a triathlon a screw in his running leg broke and he was forced to stop.

That is until a group of Marines came upon the boy.

Without a moments thought, Private First Class Matthew Morgan picked up Ben and carried him on his back for the remainder of the race, surrounded by his fellow Marines.

Now there are a couple of amazing people.
