A man who received the world's first face transplant and the donor's sister have met face to face for the first time.

In their meeting, Rebekah Aversano touches the face of Richard Norris, steps back and says in wonder, "This is the face I grew up with."

Her brother, Joshua, was just 21 when he was killed in a traffic accident in 2012.

His grieving family made the difficult decision to donate his face to a disfigured Virginia man.
