Xiao Wei's severed right hand is seen attached to his ankle before the reattachment surgery at Xiangya Hospital in Hunan, China, in this handout photo provided by Xiangya Hospital, Central South University.
Xiao Wei's right hand was cut off in an accident during his work at a factory. Rather than having a life without the right hand, the doctors offered Xiao a solution to save it by sewing the hand to the ankle to stop it dying while they treated his other injuries. The hand was grafted to his leg for a month in order to perform the surgery to reattach his hand.
