Boy has new hands - level 1

04-08-2015 15:00

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.

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
