'THESE graphic photos show how medics sewed a man’s crushed hand back together after it was mangled in a recycling machine. The victim, who hasn’t been named, got caught in the huge press used to condense plastic waste into a cube in Samut Prakan, central Thailand. An X-ray of the man’s hand shows how badly injured it was – before being incredibly pieced back together Viral Press His thumb, little finger, the tip of his index finger and a large chunk of his palm were ripped off – severing the nerves and ligaments. But incredibly, quick-thinking paramedics recovered the damaged limbs and they were taken to the nearby Chulalat 3 hospital in Bangkok. After 13 hours of in theatre, skilful surgeons finally pieced the unfortunate man’s hand back together. Speaking about the operation, Dr. Wichit Siritattamrong said at first the patient was still unhappy with the results, asking him, “why didn’t you attack my index finger?”. Dr Siritattamrong, an orthopedic hand and reconstructive microvascular surgeon, said: “It upset me a little bit when the patient asked me about his index finger. “Then I showed him the picture of his hand before the surgery and he realised how lucky he is to be able to use his hand again. “After that he was grateful to all the team who had just saved him from being handicapped.” His thumb, little finger, the tip of his index finger and a large chunk of his palm were ripped off – severing the nerves and ligaments – but doctors sewed him back up Viral Press Dr Siritattamrong performed the surgery around three years ago but only revealed the details of it on July 11 while discussing some of his career highlights. He said that the man has been able to use his hand since the accident and has had no complications since. He said: “The doctor should not try to fix the hand in this situation because most of the time it will they end in failure. “However, the most important thing is that there is an agreement between the patient and the doctor and they understand the procedure and the risks. “The patient demand his perfect hand back and I promised him that he will be able to grab things again.” The surgery took 13 hours in total, during which time the doctor had to attach the bone, the ligaments, the blood vessel and the nerves. He finally combined all the parts into a hand. However, due to an embolism had to abandon the tip of the index finger as it could have caused the whole procedure to fail. Dr Siritattamrong added: “The man’s employer was understanding and they re-assigned him to new role more suited him more since his hand was not fully functioning anymore. “Most of all, I am happy that the patient is happy now and living a good life again.” \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t We pay for your stories!

'A BIZARRE fish with freakishly human like teeth has been dubbed ‘the testicle eater’ after its founder posted the weird creature online. The strange fish, the species of which is yet to be confirmed, was caught in the village of Somate, in the district of Bellavista, in the northern Peruvian province of Sullana. Central European News The fish, which appears to have human like teeth was found in Peru[/caption] Baffled social media users wondered if the fish’s strange gnashers could be a result of pollution. Farmer Jorge Chavez, 32, was fishing with a net in an irrigation canal close to where he and his colleagues were working when he spotted the bizarre fish in his catch. The fish reportedly weighs just under five kilogrammes (11 lbs), and appears to have a row of teeth that bear a striking resemblance to human molars and incisors along its bottom jaw. The fisherman says he decided to keep the strange fish, and plans to sample it with his family – but is waiting to hear back from authorities if the strange looking fish is safe to eat first. He told reporters: “It is the first time I have seen a fish like this here. ‘TESTICLE EATER’ “It scared my family and the village, that is why I will wait until the authorities determine if the meat is harmless. “The meat is red and it seems normal.” Jorge’s fears come after social media users were quick to comment on the weird fish, pondering whether its teeth were a deformity as a result of pollution, not unlike the famous three eyed fish from iconic cartoon The Simpsons. The three eyed fish, dubbed Blinky by Simpsons fans, grows a third eye as a result of pollution leaking into the Springfield lake from Mr.Burns’ nuclear power plant. It is not known if the fish’s teeth are a malformation, but Anthony Sanchez, commenting on social media, claimed to recognise the fish. “Be careful as these kinds of fish are known as testicle eaters,” he wrote. Sanchez is referring to the Pacu, a fish native to South America that is recognisable by its massive human-like chops. \t \t\t \t\t \t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t Most read in world news \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t‘SHE JUST FELL'\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tCruise family admit grandad left toddler to fall to death from window rail\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tDEATH PLUNGE\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tCruise death family admit grandad left tot to fall to her death from this rail\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tHAIL ON EARTH\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t7 people killed including boy, 2, and '140 injured' as storms hit Greece\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tSHORT FUSE\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tAngry short man tackled in bizarre bagel shop rant that women hate men under 5ft\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tREAL-LIFE Gomorrah\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tInside Naples’ gritty underworld of crime ridden streets like Mafia show\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tRAPED BY KIDS\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tFive boys as young as 12 'film themselves gang-raping woman, 18,' in Germany\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t \t \t \t \t The Pacu are usually found in the Amazon, with their big teeth being used to bite through tough shells and seeds.
