Unusual News In Asia:Chinese Man Has His Hand Surgically Placed Onto His Ankle

A man’s right hand was severed on the 10 November, as a result of an industrial accident. Doctors have since sewn it onto his ankle, and in a month he will undergo reattachment surgery. This was done to keep his hand alive during the wait! Doctors have said that it is very likely that the reattachment surgery will be successful but only after his right arm has been recovered.

The first hospital that Xiao Wei visited said that they could not save his hand, however luckily Mr Xiao was referred to a larger hospital in Changsha,(seven hours after the accident) where they could do so. Speaking about the accident Xiao said “I am still young, and I couldn’t imagine life without a right hand.”

Cairian Healy (of the Royal College of Surgeons in England) says that procedures like this are rare, but not unheard of, and that Chinese doctors are pretty experienced in microsurgery. For example Chinese doctors have even grown a nose on a man’s forehead, to replace his original nose which was damaged as a result of a car crash. I don’t see NO British surgeon doing something as cool as that…

So, zoo owners thought they could fool their visitors into thinking a dog was a lion…

A zoo had replaced their exotic lion with a common Tibetan mastiff dog. sources say that the  dog was put in the lion’s cage as a replacement because the lion was sent away to a training centre.
Not many people were fooled by this silly trick, Liu Wen who brought her son to the zoo said: “I had my young son with me so I tried to play along and told him it was a special kind of lion, but then the dog barked and he knew straight away what it was and that I’d lied to him”.

A spokesman for the zoo said: ‘We’re doing our best in tough economic times.
‘If anyone is unhappy with our displays we will give them back their money.’

The zoo claims that the dog was being temporarily housed there due to safety concerns.

I just…I just do not understand what was going through their minds when they were trying to pull that stunt off? Surely they would have known that their visitors would have recognised that the dog was not a lion, the dog doesn’t even resemble one! How stupid do they think people are? I just hope that the reports of this story are mistaken.

JUST WOW is all I got to say to this story.
