You know, great healer, I don't want you to take this too badly given all the effort you have put in and all but I really think it's time I went to a hospital...

Just wow. That looks like he's been dead in the ground for a week or two. How is he still alive with an appendage in that condition?! Fark!

Hopefully the locals in the area see this as proof that the local healer is a total quack.

Does the sufferer have any legal recourse?

With such horrific infections, he's lucky to be alive.

Pentacostalist Holy Roller snake-handling congregations often have a few members with atrophied fingers or an entire arm missing:

Are there any snake-handling Holy Roller missionaries here in Cambodia yet?
