A Chinese man who had his leg amputated 20 years ago as a result of a drunk driving accident is doing his part to make people aware of the dangers of driving drunk – he shows them his severed leg.
Song Weiguo of Jiangyan, in China’s Jiangsu province, pulls out his severed leg from it’s sealed formaldehyde tank every year on the anniversary of his motorcycle accident 20 years ago. He then invites people over to his house and shows them the leg in an effort he hopes will shock them into thinking twice about driving while impared.
Song had his leg amputated in 1989 and after the operation, convinced the doctor to let him keep the severed limb. He keeps it in a tank of preservative at his home and says whenever he looks at it, it makes him sad, but when others see it they are shocked. He then tells them how he lost the leg and says he’s using it to do his part in the fight against drunk driving.
Song’s wife says she’s used to having the leg around after all these years, but that her husband is obsedded with it, even talking about it in his sleep sometimes.
