A Chinese man has sawed off his right leg because he could not pay for the procedure to be performed in hospital.
Zheng Yanliang, who is from Boading in Hefei Province, used a metal saw and a small knife to amputate his leg while biting on a piece of wood in an effort to mask the intense pain.
According to local media reports, Mr Zheng, a farmer and factory worker from the village of Dongzang, first began to experience pain in his leg in January 2012.
