World Amazing Stuff: 12 Gold bars removed from man's stomach

12 Gold bars removed from man's stomach

Doctors in India were shocked to find 12 gold bars inside the stomach of a businessman who was admitted after complaining of pains.

The 63-year-old man went to a hospital in Delhi earlier this month saying he had swallowed a cap from a water bottle, after a fight with his wife and wanted it removed from his body.

When surgeons operated they found gold bars weighing nearly 400g (14oz) in his stomach instead of a bottle cap.

He also complained of pain and vomiting prompting surgeons to operate, when they discovered the hoard though to be worth around £13,900.
