Mexican Teen Singer Loses Fingers
GUATEMALA CITY (AP) - Doctors reattached three fingers to the hand of a 16-year-old pop singer, after they were severed by a helicopter rotor as he waved to fans.
Ricardo Abarca was getting off the aircraft at a Guatemala City airport on Saturday. In raising his hand to greet fans, he put it into the still-whirling rotor.
``The index finger and middle finger are completely recovered,'' surgeon Gustavo Lopez said Wednesday. ``We only have some problems with blood circulation in the little finger.''
Abarca, who had only recently joined the popular teen group Mageneto, was still hospitalized in Guatemala Wednesday.
