A round-up of the weirdest viral news stories from this week.
A man has had a new nose grown on his forehead after his original nose was severely damaged in a car accident. The man, known only as Xiaolian, from the Fujian province in China, was involved in a traffic accident last year, and when he failed to get treatment for his nose injury it became infected and irreparably damaged.
The 22-year-old was left with only one choice by surgeons: to have a new nose grown on his forehead. The nose was made using skin tissue expander and cartilage from the man’s ribs before being cut into the shape of a nose.
Forehead skin is used to help reform noses because it is the closest match to skin on the nose.
Surgeons plan to transplant his new nose soon.
