Scissors Inside Man – level 2

18-05-2021 15:00

18 years ago, a man from Vietnam had a traffic accident. He went to hospital and had an operation. After leaving the hospital, he was still in pain.

He often felt sharp pain in his abdomen. This lasted for 18 years. After the 18 years, doctors took an X-ray of his abdomen. The picture showed scissors inside him. The doctors from 18 years ago had forgotten the scissors inside him! Doctors had to remove these scissors.

The man trusted the same hospital. Doctors finally removed the scissors and now the man is fine.

Difficult words: abdomen(the belly, the soft front part of the body), last(exist, be), remove(take out).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
