Face Transplant Recipient Meets His Donor's Sister

In 2012, Richard Norris became the 23rd person to receive a successful facial transplant. Now 60 Minutes Australia will air Norris's first post-surgery meeting with family of the man whose face he now calls his own. In a preview clip for Sunday's upcoming episode, Rebekah Aversano meets Norris for the first time at his home in Virginia. In the preview, after touching Norris's face, Aversano says with awe, "This is the face I grew up with." After Aversano's brother Josh was hit and killed by a minivan at age 21, his family made the decision to donate his face.
