stomach xray with phone insideLuis Zarate, a 38-year old Peruvian, was taken to the regional hospital of Trujillo earlier this week by his family after complaining of sharp stomach pains. Doctors took X-rays of his chest that showed his insides littered with screws. The weird man from a coastal town in northwestern Peru was then operated on, and his by removed 17 metal objects from his stomach — among them nails, a watch clasp and a knife — that he ate.

“There were 17 strange objects found at the level of his stomach and colon,” said Dr. Julio Acevedo, one of the surgeons who operated on Zarate. The black-and-white scans showed Zarate’s skeleton interlaced with things like bolts, barbed-wire and pens. “The objects had caused the stomach to expand,” said Acevedo. Doctors said Zarate was mentally ill but it was not clear why he ate the metal.

  2. The radiograph shown above is of a dog in the first place. It also looks to be photoshopped because the lining of the stomach wouldn't show up as brightly as it is the "radiograph" above.
