(BOSTON, MA) - An Indiana man became the fourth person in the country to receive a face transplant.

Doctors worked for more than 14 hours to replace the full facial area of 30-year-old Mitch Hunter of Speedway.

Hunter suffered a severe shock from a high-voltage electrical wire following a 2001 car accident.

The procedure was performed at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.
