Chinese woman’s ‘needle ordeal’

‘Doctors in China have discovered 26 sewing needles embedded in the body of a 31-year-old woman.

They think they were inserted into Luo Cuifen’s body when she was a baby by grandparents upset she was not a boy.

Some of these needles have penetrated vital organs, such as the lungs, liver and kidneys. One has even broken into three pieces in the woman’s brain.

The needles were discovered only when Ms Luo went to hospital complaining of blood in her urine.’
