SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A double-amputee runner from a Utah high school had his running blade prosthetics returned before a national track meet after they went missing on a New York train.

KSL-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Lsyl4q ) that Hunter Woodhall, a runner from Syracuse High School, found his running blades missing after an hour and a half ride from Connecticut to New York City on Saturday. He announced Tuesday that they had been returned to law enforcement.

The blades were stored in an overhead compartment next to Woodhall’s suitcase. He says he got up to help an elderly couple with their bags and returned to find his running blades missing.

The high school student is on the east coast for the National Junior Disability Championships in New Jersey. His first race is Wednesday.
