Stomach Full of Knives – level 2

Stomach Full of Knives – level 2

26-08-2016 07:00

A man from India started swallowing knives. He developed this habit when he was getting better from a road accident.

Recently, the man went to hospital with a stomach ache. Doctors thought that he had a tumour, but then they saw all the metal in his stomach by using a camera. They asked him about it and he told them that he swallowed 28 knives.

After surgery, though, the doctors counted 40 of them. The man is now in stable condition.

Difficult words: swallow (let something down your throat into your stomach), develop (start), habit (something that you regularly do).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
