HACKENSACK - A video of a 2-year-old double amputee learning to walk for the first time is touching hearts around the world.

YouTube video of Hackensack toddler Kayden Kinckle's first steps on new prosthetic legs has gone viral. Throughout the video, Kayden can be heard shouting, "I got it!"

Kayden was born premature with several life-threatening birth defects. He has a rare disease that caused his intestines to grow outside his body. Last January, further complications caused Kayden to lose his right leg and left foot.

Since the video became an Internet sensation, donors have sent the family more than $50,000 to cover medical costs.
