A man from Xiamen recently discovered that he had a chopstick embedded in his arm which had been there for over a month following an unsuccessful attempt at opening a beer bottle.
According to Taihainet, Zeng hurt himself while he was out drinking with friends. After accidentally stabbing himself with a wooden chopstick, the drunken Zeng pulled what he believed to be the entire chopstick out of his arm.
After cleaning the wound, Zeng felt everything was fine, but as days went by it started to get swollen and pus would seep out. As his condition got worse, he finally decided to visit a hospital a month later.
The doctor was surprised after reaching in with her forceps and pulling our an eight-centimeter-long chopstick fragment which had been lodged in his arm the whole time.
If you think this is unbelievable, then you definitely need to read up about the man who had a nail jammed in his skull and didn’t realize.
