New Hands

Örn Marinó Arnarsson, Thorkell Hardarson

A man who lost his hands in an accident, gets a new pair from a deceased person. It may sound like science-fiction from Hollywood - but this is reality. Gudmundur Felix Gretarsson (b.1974) lost both his arms in an accident while working with high voltage. After a series of operations and infections, the doctors decided to surgically remove the remaining stubs.
