ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)

The recipient of the world’s most extensive face transplant says he’s “feeling great” one year after undergoing the groundbreaking surgery.

Mississippi Firefighter Patrick Hardison whose face was burned off when the roof of a home collapsed on top of him 15 years ago, says he’s off of his feeding tubes and his vision has improved.

The father of three says he hit another milestone as a parent. “My family and I took a trip to Disney World this past June and I swam in the pool with my children for the first time in 15 years,” said Hardison.

Hardison underwent a 26-hour surgery at New York University’s Langone Medical Center last year. He received the face of 26-year-old David Rodebaugh, a BMX extreme bicycling enthusiast from Brooklyn who was pronounced brain dead after a cycling accident.
