Girl keeps hand thanks to leg

Chinese doctors saved a girl’s hand by sewing it to her leg.

Ming Li’s left hand was severed from her wrist when she was run over by a tractor in July and was too badly damaged to reattach immediately after it.

Medics decided to temporarily attach the hand to her right calf so it could heal.

Surgeons have now successfully transplanted the nine-year-old girl’s hand back on to her arm and are confident she will be able to use it normally with no long-term side-effects — via redwolf.newsvine.com
