VietNamNet Bridge – Many international correspondents were waiting at Seattle Airport for the 2-year-old boy whose leg and genitals had been ravaged by an animal and who came to the US for an operation. After the surgery at Dartmouth Hospital, the boy, Phung Thien Nhan, could urinate normally.

Here are the latest photos of Nhan in the US.

Only one relative can go into anesthesiology per patient but as Nhan is a special case, his parents are allowed in
