    Face Transplant Recipient’s New Face Came from Suicide

    The story Isabelle Dinoire, who made headlines last week as the world's first face transplant recipient, is perhaps the strangest I have heard in some time.

    Donor for world's first face transplant had hanged herself

    The donor whose features were used for the world's first face transplant had committed suicide just hours before the operation.

    As Isabelle Dinoire, 38, the recipient mauled by her pet labrador, was eating strawberries and chocolate yesterday following the operation, it emerged that the source of her new nose, lips and chin had hanged herself.

    The woman, also 38, was brain dead when she arrived at a hospital in Lille last weekend, at which point preparations for the groundbreaking surgery began.

    Her family gave consent for the operation.

    Ms Dinoire was given her new start in a 15-hour procedure that ended on Monday morning. Speaking yesterday for the first time since the operation, she said: "I am very grateful to this woman. I thank her family for giving their permission for this operation. I thank them from the bottom of my heart."

    She had suffered her appalling injuries after she lost consciousness following an overdose of sleeping tablets, which she has now confirmed was an attempt on her own life. Her dog, which has been destroyed, is thought to have been trying to revive her.

    Let's recap, shall we?

    1. A woman tries to kill herself but fails.
    2. Her dog tries to save her and succeeds.
    3. Another woman tries to kill herself and succeeds.
    4. The second woman's face is transplanted onto the first one.
    5. The dog is killed for his efforts.
    Strange shit, dog should have bit her leg.

    I am such a idiot....I post the damn thing and I even did a search on what type of dog it was and it was right under my nose....

    It seems that every dog that mauls a human is a pit, when the news of this lady came out it was said it was a pit who mauled her when in fact it was a Labrador.

    I was watching the News last week and they reported a Pit attacking the police....the dog was clearly a Rottwieller.....Pits in the news sells.

    I know they "think" the dog was trying to help but I don't see how mauling her face is helpful. Why would the dog go to such extremes???

    here's a fun fact:
    Petey, the dog from 'Our Gang' was a retired fighting pitt bull. Guess they are really good w/ children.

    He was never a fighter he starred in films from the age of 6 month's his son did as well. I love that dog and the circle around his eye.

    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    But the one thing for certain, the black ring around Pete's left eye was not the work of a makeup artist. The natural skin coloration was such an oddity that it became certified by Ripley's Believe It or Not.
