Did I just read that?

"In April, dozens of doctors working in teams over 30 hours performed the world's first simultaneous partial-face and double-hand transplant at the Henri Mondor hospital in the Paris suburb of Creteil on a 30-year-old burn victim. The man died in June after suffering a heart attack during follow-up surgery.

Prosecutors said in December they would not charge the owner, Sandra Herold, because there was no evidence she knowingly disregarded any risk the animal posed."

Er? The owner of what, the hospital? The hands and face that were donated? Wait--the hands and face came from an animal? What animal? Or was it the surgeon doing the follow-up surgery who was the animal?
