The woman who lost her right arm in a freak MRT accident had her arm reattached to her body by doctors, says report.

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) Usec. Cesar Chavez via ABS-CBN News said Angeline Fernando’s right arm has been reconnected to her body after a medical procedure performed by surgeons at Makati Medical Center 12 hours after the accident.

“Angeline’s arm is reconnected to her body. The bone, the nerve and vessels are reconnected,” Chavez said.
