Transplant recipient sees his new hand for the first time

The nation's fourth hand transplant recipient is seeing his new hand for the first time.  Doctors removed bandages from 32-year-old Dave Armstrong on Thursday.

Armstrong underwent a 14-hour operation over the weekend in Jewish Hospital's hand care center.  He lost his hand in a gun accident.

Doctors say Armstrong's new hand is healing just right.  He'll begin hand therapy Friday.
