Thank you, Thing.

Severed hand attached to man's ankle.

'I was just shocked and frozen at the spot, until co-workers unplugged the machine and retrieved my hand and took me to the hospital,' he said of the accident, which took place last month in Changde, south-central China.

After being taken to a larger hospital in the region seven hours after the incident, doctors said they could re-attach the hand but not straightaway.

In order to stop the severed hand from dying, they grafted it to Mr Xiao's ankle, where it remained for a month before he had recovered from other injuries sustained in the accident to undergo re-attachment surgery.

Doctors are now hopeful that he will regain full function of his hand.

Previously, previously, previously.

    “The Chinese,” bellowed a drunken Australian, “Chinese bloody invented nerve-splicing. Give me the mainland for a nerve job any day. Fix you right, mate…”
