Gnarly!: Severed Hand Attached To Ankle To Save It

hand-to-heel-censored.jpg

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. And to fat piggie (wow, two animal tipsters!), who is going to be fried pork rinds one day.

  • Well, if it isn't my old friend Mr. McGregg, with a leg for an arm and an arm for a leg!

  • Waaaaa... it that the option? Lose it or staple it to your leg and hope it grows? That just seems like a problem BEGGING for a door #3.

    God damn, he probably rocked at kickball while it was on his foot.

    But it remains to be seen if he was any better at pussy footing.

    I would have kept it on my leg, learned how to gain function back to it and then use it to pick up loose change on the ground without looking like a bum. I would be rich with pennies and nickles!!!!!!!

    smart played by the doctor. Attach it to the near the legs to take use of the vitals to keep the hand from rotting then attach it back to the hand when possible

  • MAYBE NOT FOR EVER
