Boy 'lived as a robot' for two months

For two months, Grady Hofmann lived vicariously through a robot.

In the spring of 2012, the then eight-year-old was told he needed a bone marrow transplant. After the surgery, he would be confined to a small isolation room in a hospital.

Sumi Das reports on how the robot helped him live his life at home and in the classroom while being confined to a hospital bed.
