Tin Man

Apparently the Chinese health care system leaves something to be desired. When a farmer lost both his arms due to an explosion, he decided to make new ones from scrap metal.

Sun Jifa from the town of Guanmashan, Jilin Province in Northern China lost both his arms but was unable to pay for false ones as he didn’t have any money.

He then spent the next eight-years making prototype arms, before finally creating a pair of metal hands that can function just like real ones using a series of wires and pulleys.

‘I made this from scrap metal for virtually nothing. There is no need to pay hospitals a fortune’ he said.

I admire his ingenuity and perseverance, but not sure I would recommend this to others.
