Doctors Save Life of man Who Ate 40 Knives


Jarnail Singh, 42, who says he finds knives to be delicious had to be taken to The Corporate Hospital in Gurdaspur, India for abdominal pain and weakness.  As it turned out, Singh had eaten 40 knives because he liked the way they tasted.  I suppose they’d be ok with a little hot sauce.  (But then, what isn’t?)

Doctors were amazed to find 40 knives inside Jarnail Singh, 42, after he swallowed them over a two-month period

Staff at the hospital in Gurdaspur, India, said it was the 'most dreadful' surgery in the past 20 years

From The Mail Online:

One of the five surgeons on hand, Dr Jitinder Malhotra, branded it as the most dreadful surgery he had seen in the last 20 years of practicing.

He said: ‘When we began diagnosis, we found the cause of the pain puzzling. We did an ultrasound, which revealed some solid mass in his stomach, shaped like cancer.

‘The patient then told us he had an uncontrollable urge to eat knives. What is astonishing is that he had been eating knives since the past two months.

‘This was very unnerving, I have not witnessed something like this in my career as a doctor.’

After five hours of surgery, Jarnail was somehow successfully treated and will be discharged from hospital in the next few days.

Doctors said Singh told them he had an 'uncontrollable urge' to eat knivesThey initially thought he may have a tumour after an ultrasound
