Man had his ears stitched to the stomach to save it

A man who had one of his ears cut off when he was attacked in a park had it stitched to his stomach in a bid to save it.

Because the ear was not found for 17 hours, surgeons could not immediately reattach it. Instead, doctors stitched it inside his stomach so some of the tissue will re-grow. The plan is to then reconstruct the ear using cartilage.
