Man's severed hand attached to his ankle

Doctors in China were able to save a man’s severed hand by attaching it to his ankle before reattaching it to his arm.

When Xiao Wei had his right hand severed by a machine at work, co-workers took him and the hand to local hospital, where doctors said they would be unable to save it. So he was sent to a larger hospital, where doctors decided to attach it to his ankle to prevent it from dying.

The hand was on the ankle for 30 days before doctors were able to successfully attach it to his arm. He is expected to gain full use of it.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
