An 8-month-old Chinese baby is under observation as it recovers from a 12 hour operation to reattach her hands.
As if that isn't enough scary news, it was reportedly her grandmother who cut them off in the first place.
The injured baby was discovered by her mother who had just come home from work.
Here's what a neighbor said:
"She dashed down holding her baby, who was covered with blood. The baby's hands were gone."
The grandmother is currently in a coma at the hospital after an apparent suicide attempt.
The mother rushed her baby to the hospital where surgeons fused together severed bones, blood vessels, nerves and skin.
The bright spot for the traumatized mother and child is that as long as the surgery is successful, the long term prognosis is good.
Here's what a doctor said:
"You essentially stitch the two ends together, but it takes a while for the nerve to regenerate And a child is absolutely perfect in terms of healing potential. Often there is some loss of fine motor function. But if it's a wrist-level injury, and a clean cut, we would expect extremely good hand function."
We have no idea what that grandmother was thinking, but we're glad the little baby should be A-OK - it's a big relief!
