Disabled Chinese man makes artificial limbs for himself and others
When he lost his forearms in an accident in China at age 27, Sun Jifa was told that the prosthetics he needed for daily life would cost more than he could afford. So he went ahead and found a way to make artificial limbs himself. He went on to develop his skills, and today the 66-year-old continues to manufacture cheap prosthetic limbs to disabled people around the country from his hometown of Yongji in the northeastern province of Jilin.
