Little children put small objects in their mouths and swallow them unconsciously. But it is surprising that even an old man can swallow things like that. It is noteworthy that it also swallows sharp blades. It swallowed 56 blades at once, not one but two. His name was Yash Pal Singh and he lived in a village called Data in the Sanchor region of Rajasthan. He works as an accountant and lives in a room with four friends. He has a habit of eating blades. Even friends don’t know that. Who eats the blades in his absence. As a result, health deteriorated. He could not go to work and stayed at home. Suddenly one day he vomited blood. He immediately informed his friends over the phone.
The friends who came to the room were scared to see his condition. He was immediately taken to a private hospital. Doctors scanned his stomach and found many objects. Examinations like sonography and endoscopy were also done. The tests revealed that the man had metal blades in his stomach. The blades were surgically removed. There are 56 blades in total. His health is currently stable.
The blades are sharp. Unable to swallow them, he would swallow the wrapped blades along with the covers. He told the doctors the same thing. Swallowing along with the paper would have reached the stomach without causing any damage to the throat. But since the whole blade is difficult to get down the throat, he folds it into two pieces and swallows it. The doctors who collected this information from him were surprised. ‘Why are you eating blades?’ If asked, the answer is not given. Even his relatives do not know that he has a habit of eating blades.
In the past…
