Double arm transplant US soldier 'looking forward to driving'

Brendan Marrocco, a US soldier who lost four limbs after being hit by a roadside bomb in 2009, has received a double hand transplant.

While it will be at least year before he will be able to tell how fully he can use the new arms, Mr Marrocco says he is looking forward to swimming and driving.
