What do you think about this? Do we have any lesson from it? Do you have anything related to it?

X-ray shows how man accidentally swallowed scissors

Chinese surgeons saved a man's life after he accidentally swallowed a pair of nail scissors he was using to clean his teeth.

These are the astonishing X-rays that show how surgeons saved a man's life after he cut his throat with a pair of scissors - from the inside.


X-rays showed the 9cm long and 4cm wide scissors fully entered esophagus, with the sharp top angling up to the epiglottis Photo: EUROPICS

If you read the article in the link:


Lin Kong had borrowed a four-inch-long pair of nail scissors to use instead of a toothpick to clean his teeth after a meal.

But as one of his friends told a joke, the 27-year-old laughed and swallowed the clippers.

As he tried to cough up the scissors, the points, which were facing upwards, dug deeper into his throat, causing serious damage.


I wonder how did the scizzer went through his throat though, it must've been huge...

I think Asian people are coming up with crazier ideas everyday, good or bad. My dad once tried to use charcoal to brush his teeth

Its so stupid of him using the scissors as a tooth pick in the first place.

Scissors are for cutting.
Scissors are not for cleaning your teeth.
Toothpicks are for cleaning your teeth.


Golly...
Weird that that thing can go down his throat. How did he swallow it?!
