A German farmer who received a double arm transplant has showed off his two new limbs for the first time.
Karl Merk, 54, lost his arms in a farming accident six years ago. Tristana Moore reports.

"Merk is recovering well and can perform simple tasks such as opening doors and turning lights on and off. His ultimate goals are to eat and dress himself and ride a motorcycle."

He probably shouldn't get a 'Busa or the new VMax. They might rip his new arms right off...
