Hard Graft

A 9 year old girl in China (Ming Li) was run over by a tractor and consequently had her arm mangled like a tigers play toy.
Due to the extremity of the injury doctors were unable to reattach the young girls hand to the more traditional wrist joint.
So, the surgeons at the Zhengzhou hospital instead grafted it onto her leg.

Her lacerated limb has since repaired enough to be rejoined by her formerly foreign phalanges.
Now that’s handy work!

Congrats to all those involved, Ming is doing well and her fingers are regaining their former colour and glory.
I think they all deserve a big… clap.
