The 17-year-old track star and good Samaritan who was injured helping the victims of a crash on I-96 in April is set to get a prosthesis thanks to the Shriners organization. 

English had to have part of his leg amputated after another driver slammed into the crash site. He has been posting about his progress on social media.  

The Detroit Moslem Shrine says they will be taking English to Shriners Children's Hospital in Chicago today to get his custom prosthesis at no cost to the family. 

Hospital staff will also help English learn to use the device. 

The other good Samaritan who stopped to help, Dr. Cynthia Ray, was also hurt in the secondary crash and later died from her injuries.
