Richard Norris is seen before and after his face transplant surgery. Surgeons from the University of Maryland Medical Centre performed what they said was the world's most comprehensive face transplant, after a gun accident that almost took Norris's life 15 years ago.

From the looks, he had the front of his face blown off right up the middle. Guessing from that, that his riffle misfired while it was butt to the ground facing up at him.

Ouch is all I can say.

Actually a much more fascinating story than I'd thought.

Seems they replaced both jaws and tongue, too. Though still not sure what happened to begin with. One site says he was attacked, the rest just say shot. Neither of which sound accidental. *shrug*

It looks like the MORON had tried to shoot himself with a shotgun and failed <-- have seen similar events. Now hundreds of thousands (maybe a million) dollars have been spent to correct the aftermath of one not-so-bright idea. Thanks to medicine, the evolution has stopped.

This is how John Travolta and Nicolas Cage should have looked on that "Face/Off" movie. And some said it could never be possible...

From what I read he was accidentally shot by someone else. It may have been military, certainly not hunting.

Poor soul! He became reclusive because of the taunts he had to endure from ignorant people, who seem to forget that what happened to him, could happen to anyone.

He's got his life back now. Kudos to the doctors. They performed a miracle.

Kinda looks like Vin Diesel now. Am I the only one wondering how weird this must be for the family of the guy who died and was the face donor, to see their husband's/son's face all over the news walking around being "alive"? Also, what happens if his body rejects the donor tissue in the future?
