Guy Gets Double Arm Transplant; Does World's Best Robot Dance Move to Celebrate

By Jesus Diaz on at

I love sad stories with happy ending. This gentleman is Gabriel Granados Vergara, a 52-year-old man who lost both arms below the elbows, after they were charred beyond repair in an electrical accident. But thanks to an unnamed 34-year-old shooting victim, he got them back. Well, not his own arms, but still!

The double arm transplant was performed by Dr. Martin Iglesias at the National Institute of Medical Science and Nutrition in Mexico City. Granados, who is a government agent working for Mexico City's prosecutors' office, was very happy: "This is wonderful that after being without hands for some time, all of a sudden I see new hands."
