Boy has new hands - level 1
A boy is sick. He has a very bad infection. Doctors cut off his hands and feet. They give him prosthetic legs. He can walk, run and jump.
Now, he has a long operation. He has a double hand transplant. He is the youngest person to get this.
He must exercise his new hands. This can take weeks.
Difficult words: infection (a type of disease which can destroy a part of your body), prosthetic (a part of your body that is not natural), transplant (when doctors take off a part of the body and give it to somebody else).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
