Double Arm Transplant for Iraq War Vet Who Lost All His Limbs

Injured by roadside bomb on Easter Sunday 2009


He was the first soldier to survive the loss of all four limbs in Iraq, and now he's the recipient of a cutting-edge double-arm transplant.

Staten Island's own Brendan Marrocco, 26, endured the 13-hour operation on Dec. 18 at Johns Hopkins Hospital to replace the arms he lost because of a roadside bomb on Easter Sunday 2009.
