Doctors give soldier new ear after growing it in her arm

A young soldier received a new ear after she lost one during a car crash two years ago — after surgeons grew the organ beneath the skin on her forearm, US Army officials said.

Army Pvt. Shamika Burrage, a 21-year-old Mississippi native, lost her left ear when she was driving with her cousin to Fort Bliss, Texas, in 2016 and suddenly lost control of the car, causing it to crash.
