July 24, 2011 PTI, Kolkata / DC.

Seven-year-old Barun Khandelwal did not panic when his left hand was severed from the elbow after it got trapped in a lift.
Rather, he coolly went to a hospital near his house here holding the mutilated hand to get it reattached.
When the boy walked up to his sixth floor flat on Diamond Harbour Road in south Kolkata, he narrated the incident to his grandmother. By that time, his neighbours gathered around him and one of them threw the limb into the dustbin.

Courageous Kid has done a great service to his hand; should be awarded 'bravery award' and the neighbour should be punished for his insensitive behaviour!

  1. Wow, that is amazing. What a brave little boy. I hope he had a great hand doctor and got it put back on.
