The parents of 2-year-old Cillian Jackson couldn't afford to buy an electric wheelchair so they turned to the robotics team at Farmington High School in Minnesota.
"These kids took time out of their busy schedules to do this for our son. We're so grateful," Cillian's mother, Krissy Jackson, told Kare 11 News.
Last week, four months after receiving his custom wheelchair, Cillian and his parents returned to the school and was reunited with the teens responsible for his gift.
