In a miraculous incident, doctors in Egypt were able to save the life of a three-month-old baby after removing five metal objects from his abdomen on Monday.
In addition to the age of the boy, the quantity of 3-cm long curtain hooks and the sharp edges made the case more challenging for the medical team at the University Children's Hospital in Mansoura.
Following an X-ray, a CT scan was done to rule out any injury to the stomach or esophagus by the sharp edges of the metal clips. After being reassured, the doctors went ahead with the operation and successfully extracted the metal pins.
According to the mother, she left the boy with his three-year-old sister for a short duration, it was at this time when she put the metal clips in her sibling's mouth.
