Christina Stephens, a "practicing occupational therapist, clinical researcher, and peer educator," lost her leg in a crush injury. And then she did something incredibly awesome.

Stephens built herself a prosthetic leg - out of Legos.

"Someone in my research lab jokingly suggested I make a prosthetic leg out of legos. The joke's on you—I went home and did it. Please don't do this yourself, I don't want you to fall and get hurt!" she told Gizmodo.

No, the lego leg isn't her permanent prosthetic - just something fun she did on a whim. If you want to track her journey from injury to real prosthetic leg, she chronicles it all on Facebook and YouTube.

Check out the awesome build below:
