Bionic hands: Chinese man spends eight years building himself new arms after DIY accident.

A man who lost both hands when a homemade bomb exploded has finally created a new pair of arms after eight years of planning.

Sun Jifa could not afford the hospital’s prosthetic limbs after the explosive for blast fishing detonated prematurely, but desperately needed the use of his hands to work on the family farm.

That’s when the 51-year-old from Guanmashan, Jilin province, northern China, decided to create his own bionic hands.
