How did the man got hurt?
A Carpenter named Anthony Lelliott was cutting the floorboards with the electric saw and ended up cutting his left hand into two places. He was immediately rushed to the hospital with a horrible deep cut at two places.
The scenario at the hospital
The British Surgeon was in charge of the case.

“The care I’ve received has been fantastic and I’ve got so much gratitude for everyone,” Anthony said to the sources. “Words cannot describe it because I was expecting to wake up without a hand. It’s just trying to get it to work now. It’s unbelievable really, I’m so grateful,” he added.
