Flesh-Eating Victim Gets Bionic Hands

Aimee Copeland has her hands back. The 25-year-old, who lost her hands, a leg, and a foot last year after acquiring a devastating case of necrotizing fasciitis, has just been fitted with state-of-the-art prosthetic hands. And she couldn’t be happier. “It just mimics so well a natural hand that it really just reminds me of before the accident,” Copeland told CNN, adding that she can’t wait to cook and clean again. The hands cost up to $120,000 each, manufacturer Touch Bionic says. Copeland’s local news station has video of her showing off the new hands at the link below.
