BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn woman who had all four of her limbs removed after alleged medical malpractice is getting a new lease of life thanks to prosthetic surgery.

Tabitha Mullings had orthopedic legs surgically attached last year and received new arms about two weeks ago.

?I can pick up a soda can, a bottle of water and drink with one hand,? says Mullings. ?It?s amazing.?

Mullings will soon begin a new round of physical surgery focusing on her new arms.
