Docs save man's life - after pulling out 17 metal objects from his stomach!
Melbourne, July 13 (ANI): Doctors in Trujillo in Peru have saved life of a 38-year-old man by removing 17 metal objects - including nails, a watch clasp and a knife - from his colon and stomach.
Luis Zarate was taken to the hospital by his family after he complained of sharp stomach pains.
While at the medical centre, the 'metal eating' man's chest X-rays were taken which revealed his insides littered with screws.
"There were 17 strange objects found at the level of his stomach and colon. The objects had caused the stomach to expand," News.com.au quoted Dr Julio Acevedo, one of the surgeons who operated him, as saying.
The doctors also said that this man was mentally ill but they could not tell why he ate the metal. (ANI)
