SHOCKING PHOTOS: Doctors remove knife used to ward of evil spirits from baby’s stomach

Doctors in India have
removed a penknife from
the stomach of a six-month-
old boy who had been
wearing it around his neck
to ward off evil spirits.Dev
Thakor, swallowed the knife
by accident while being
breastfed by his mother
Rekha Ben.He had been
wearing it on a string
around his neck, which is a
local tradition in India…
Dev’s father, Bharat Thakor,
said his son ‘suddenly
started crying, screaming’
before his family noticed the
knife was missing. The child
was then rushed to a private
hospital where an X-ray
confirmed he had
swallowed the penknife
The two-inch foldable knife
came off its string last
Friday as Dev was being fed
by his mother. He then
swallowed it without her
noticing.

Mr Thakor, a tea stall owner,
didn’t have enough money
for his son’s surgery but his
neighbours and customers
came to his aid and ‘saved
my son’s life’.
Dr Shravan Bohra, chief
gastroenterologist at Apollo
Hospitals where Dev’s
operation was performed,
said
‘It was a critical case as the
knife was lying open in
the upper part of Dev’s
stomach and could have
harmed the Mucosa – the
inner part of his body –
but fortunately he was
remarkably not injured.
