Man has a new face - level 2

Man has a new face - level 2

23-11-2015 15:00

A house fire injured a volunteer firefighter when he was trying to save a woman. The fire burnt most of his face and head.

The brave man and father of five had an operation. He received a new face from a 26-year-old who died in an accident.

The operation took 26 hours. Doctors worked in two teams – one team prepared the donor and the other one prepared the recipient.

Doctors say that this is a historic moment. An operation like this changes lives.

Difficult words: volunteer firefighter (a firefighter who is not paid for the work – he just wants to help), donor (“giver”), recipient (the one who receives – gets the new body part).

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