TAIPEI, Taiwan — The arm of a convenience store clerk, which was nearly severed in a
grisly robbery in New Taipei, was successfully sutured back on Monday after 13 hours of intensive microsurgical operation, according to Central News Agency (CNA).
The clerk, a 17-year-old surnamed Ding, was severely injured Sunday night when the suspect attacked him with a machete inside in a convenience store in Xinzhuang District.
Ding, who had a major chest wound and an arm that was nearly completed severed, was rushed to the Far Eastern Memorial Hospital in New Taipei’s Banciao District.
