Ben Shepherd Paused Interview To Play Spider-Man With Little Amputee Lad

Ben Shepherd Paused Interview To Play Spider-Man With Little Amputee Lad

Sometimes, it's nice to remember that there's good in the world. Take this clip of Ben Shepherd and three-year-old Reuben Harvey-Smith playing Spider-Man - seemingly unaware that they were both live on telly.

It's just feel-good stuff. And what's wrong with that?! Nothing, that's what.

Reuben appeared on Good Morning Britain with his mum, Louise, to raise awareness regarding toxic shock syndrome (TSS).

Earlier this year, Reuben was taken to hospital where doctors misdiagnosed his condition as tonsillitis. He was, in fact, suffering from TSS after burning himself on the iron. He had to have both legs amputated and seven fingers as a result.

The family now ensure that they tell as many people as possible what signs and symptoms to look out for in the hope that a repeat of Rebuen's particular situation can be avoided.

Louise is taking legal action against the hospital. The family could receive £4million, although they have already had an initial £50,000 after the hospital admitted liability.

You can watch Good Morning Britain on weekdays from 6 - 8:30am.
