This incredible video shows a teen who lost both hands to meningitis as a baby completing her makeup routine using a bionic arm. Tilly Lockey, 13, from Newcastle upon Tyne can put on her eyeliner, use makeup brushes and blenders effortlessly without any assistance, despite working with specialised mechanical limbs. The inspirational girl has devoted her time over the years to raising awareness of the complications that can follow meningitis. She needed 10 blood transfusions and lost both of her hands after contracting meningococcal septicaemia at just 15 months old. Tilly was given a 0% chance survival by doctors but defied all of the odds to survive the deadly disease. The footage was captured yesterday (February 11).
