Carlos Mariotti, 42, from Orleans, Brazil, injured his left-hand whilst operating a machine at his job in a plastic factory. He lost two fingers in the accident as well as his skin from his palm and the back of his hand.
Before his hand could heal, experts have estimated that infections would cause most of the hand to rot. So surgeons gave Carlos two option to either amputate his left hand or place it inside his stomach. He decided for the latter.
His hand will be placed in his stomach so it won't rot and it will allow enough time for skin and muscle to regrow. The hand will be placed in a pocket in his belly near the stomach for a total of 42 days.
He is not allowed to move his hand too much but has been told to wiggle his fingers every now and again so his hand doesn't become stiff reported by The Sun.
