• Boy undergoing cancer treatment uses robot to attend class


    SOUTH FLORIDA - A south Florida middle school student is undergoing cancer treatment out of state, but is still able to go to class and hang out with friends through a robot.

    Kyle Weintraub does almost everything his seventh-grade classmates do at the David Posnack Hebrew Day School, except he gets cancer treatments in Philadelphia.

    His family said the robot is irreplaceable.

    "He's no longer isolated. He's part of the class. He's a normal kid sitting or standing, whatever your perspective is on what the robot is doing, zooming in zooming out right there in front of the classroom," said Kyle's father, David Weintraub.

    The robot cost about $6,000. Students at Kyle's school helped raise the money to buy it.
