The medical field never ceases to amaze me. Loose your hand at work, no big deal, you can just attach it onto your ankle until further notice.

On November 10, Xiao Wei’s right  hand was severed due to an accident. As he was frozen from shock, his coworkers unplugged the machine and grabbed his severed member. Doctors needed to assure the hand wouldn’t die, so they decided to attach Wei’s right hand to his ankle. The hand hung above his foot for a month, until doctors successfully reattached it where it was intended. Science does it again.
