We can all do some pretty crazy things when we are angry, for example on Tuesday one guy decided to swallow a 15-cm-long nail after fighting with his wife.
According to Ifeng News, the 36-year-old man surnamed Qi didn’t decide to go the hospital until the day after, when he could no longer stand the sharp pain in his stomach.
Using an endoscope, Shanghai doctors spotted one end of the nail stuck to the wall of Qi’s stomach while the other end had entered his small intestines.
Fortunately, doctors were able to remove the object via surgery and Qi reports no longer feeling any pain.
You won’t believe this, but this isn’t the first time this kind of thing has happened. In 2014, a husband swallowed eight paperclips during a drunken quarrel with his wife. Doctors are presumably getting pretty good at handling this kind of thing from years of experience extracting spoons from the stomachs of careless slurpers.
