Gnarly!: Severed Hand Attached To Ankle To Save It

Gnarly!: Severed Hand Attached To Ankle To Save It

Posted on Updated on


Note: Uncensored version of the shot HERE because some people are squeamish (I heard the girl sitting next to me at the coffee shop spit up a little).

This is Xiao Wei’s hand and foot. Wei lost his hand to an industrial accident in Changde, China, and, after finally making it to the hospital seven hours later (that is entirely too far to live from a hospital), doctors attached his hand to his foot to save it. After spending a month there, doctors were successfully able to reattach it, and he is expected to recover almost full functionality of the hand. When reached for comment, Wei’s heel missed his temporary friend. “He smelled good.”

Thanks to El Tigre, who once had a paw sewn to his tail.
