Tenn. doctor back from Afghanistan is theft victim
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – A Tennessee doctor who lost his right hand while deployed with the military in Afghanistan has lost a bag containing three prosthetic hands to a thief.
Dr. Daniel McConnell said he's survived things he shouldn't have, but it would be nice to catch a break.
After returning from the war, McConnell completed his medical studies at the Quillen School of Medicine at East Tennessee State University and is now working there as a resident, according to the Johnson City Press (http://bit.ly/nPIulw).
McConnell said the prostheses in the bag labeled "Wounded Warrior" had recently been repaired and were taken from his car on Saturday. The thief also took a GPS device.
McConnell hopes the Veterans Administration will help him get new prosthetic hands. He has just one remaining.
