India’s first hand transplant - level 2
Doctors carried out India’s first hand transplant. It was a great achievement for the Asian subcontinent.
It took 20 doctors 16 hours to conduct the double hand transplant. The man who received the operation works in event management. He lost his hands when he fell out of a moving train. He said at a news conference that he is very happy and he can now do all of his regular activities.
Doctors transplanted his new hands from a 24-year-old man who died in a road accident.
Difficult words: achievement (something which you do successfully), conduct (to do), news conference (a situation when information about something is given to journalists).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Did you see the video? The man looks more shocked than happy, doesn't he?
