Massive amount of skin ordered to treat NZ volcano victims

In the wake of a deadly volcanic eruption in New Zealand – doctors are working tirelessly to treat more than two dozen patients with horrific burns to 30 percent or more of their bodies. To aid in that effort – New Zealand is taking the extraordinary measure of ordering 1.2 million square centimeters of human skin from abroad to treat the victims.

Jorge Villapalos, a lead surgeon for plastics and grafting in London, England, described the surgical process to Reuters.
