Doctors in Nuevo León reattach arm of six-year-old

A six-year-old boy from Monterrey, Nuevo León, who lost an arm when he stuck it inside an operating washing machine on Sunday is recuperating after doctors reattached it.

Red Cross paramedics who were called to the boy’s home stabilized the youngster, retrieved the arm and put it on ice and rushed him to a nearby IMSS hospital.

Later, a team of physicians at the Hospital of Traumatology and Orthopedics No. 21, having decided that surgery was viable, reattached the amputated limb in a 10-hour procedure.

The patient is now being monitored constantly to ensure the limb is not rejected.
