Amazingly a man’s severed finger grew back thanks to one South Florida doctor and a little pig bladder.

Jockey Paul Halpern was feeding a horse when the animal managed to bite off one of his fingers.

One of the guys that worked with me reached his hand in the horse’s mouth, took the fingertip out, and I jumped in the car, grabbed the rest of my finger wondering what we should do,” Halpern told CBS Miami.
