6. Stone Grinding Machine Accident
A Polish man experienced more tragedy than most people can endure in a single day, yet he lived through it. Through a twist of bad fortune, his face made contact with the stone grinding machine he was working with. From that moment on, his life changed forever, as he basically lost his face.
At the age of 33, the Polish man underwent a facial transplant. His bones were rebuilt, and his skin was reformed over a new nose. The grueling procedure lasted 27 hours.
