TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The two Gadsden County boys who were stabbed by their mother and survived visited some of the people who treated them.

Juan Pedro and Guillermo Timoteo Nino-Brown arrived at Tallahassee Memorial's Bixler Trauma and Emergency Center on April 24th with life-threatening injuries.

Against all odds, the boys survived their severe brain traumas.

The boys, dubbed the "Miracle Brothers," recently came back to TMH for an emotional reunion with the caregivers who saved their lives.

One of those is Dr. Joseph Soto, an ear, nose and throat specialist.

"Considering the low I felt afterwords the whole situation, it's pretty amazing," he said. "I mean, I cried for them before, and I knew this would happen today when I saw them, bu tthis is why I do my job. To see them recover and move forward is what keeps us going."

The boys' mother was originally charged with two counts of attempted murder, but charges were dropped after a mental evaluation found her unfit to stand trial.
