In the spirit of Christmas the BBC website reported on this cheery story today. 50 2" needles have been found in a 2 year olds body whilst he was being X-rayed. Doctors, in Brazil, say they could not all have been ingested = someone has inserted 50 needles into a little boy... as he is from the countryside somewhere we'll probably find that this was some sort of voodoo.... did he scream when you pushed them in? Sickos are everwhere...if you have a happy, normal life you should count your lucky stars...enjoy your Christmas and spare a thought for those less fortunate than yourself this holiday time.
Fifty needles found in Brazilian boy
A Brazilian toddler has up to 50 sewing needles inside him, which doctors suspect were deliberately inserted. The two-year-old boy was taken to hospital by his mother. X-rays revealed the needles, including one in his lung. His mother said she did not know how the needles, some 2in (5cm) long, got inside him. Police are investigating. A doctor said it was unlikely the boy had swallowed them. Most of them will be removed, but not the ones inside organs as that could cause more damage.
Dr Luiz Cesar Soltoski told Associated Press news agency: "We think it could have only been by penetration because we found needles in the lung, the left leg and in different parts of the thorax.
"It couldn't have been by ingestion."
The boy was taken to a hospital in the small north-eastern city of Ibotirama, before being transferred to a larger hospital in Barreiras, in the state of Bahia. He is in intensive care. There were no signs of wounds on the boy, doctors said.
A Brazilian toddler has been found with some 40 needles inside him, which police say his stepfather inserted during a possible "black magic" ritual. Police said Roberto Carlos Magalhaes has confessed to sticking the sewing needles into the two-year-old boy, who is in intensive care at a hospital.
As I said earlier , some sort of voodoo black magic....tragic
