It's hard stop staring at the picture long enough to read the explanation of why a hand is attached to a foot.
It's a real picture and a real story, reported by the Metro on Monday, about a man in China who had his hand attached to his ankle for a month before doctors successfully reattached it to his arm.
Xiao Wei, of China's Hunan province, severed the hand at work in back in November.
"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.
After being taken to a larger hospital in the region seven hours after the incident, doctors said they could reattach the hand but not right away.
In order to keep the hand alive and viable, doctors opted to graft it to the man's ankle.
Besides ripping injuries, his arm was also flattened. Doctors say they had to clear and treat his injuries before taking on the hand reattachment surgery.
Doctors were able to successfully reattach the hand, and he is expected to regain full use of it.
Replantation has been defined by the American Society for Surgery of the Hand as "the surgical reattachment of a body part, most commonly a finger, hand or arm, that has been completely cut from a person's body."
