“Man’s stomach filled with coins and nails”
Doctors were baffled after finding hundreds of coins, nails, batteries and shards of glass inside a man’s stomach.
Burhan Demir from Turkey took his younger brother to hospital after he complained about abdominal pain.
Doctors did an X-ray and were amazed to discover 233 items in the 35-year-old’s stomach.
These included coins, batteries, magnets, nails, pieces of glass, stones and screws.
Surgeons later removed all the items from the patient.
Doctors discovered one or two nails had penetrated the stomach wall, and a few pieces were in his intestine.
There’s no explanation as to why the man swallowed so any items.
