Scissors Inside Man – level 3

18-05-2021 15:00

18 years ago, a man from Vietnam had a traffic accident. He had to go to surgery but ever since he had been experiencing frequent sharp pains.

Almost two decades later, an X-ray showed surgical scissors lying inside his abdomen. The doctors had left them inside him 18 years ago!

Now, he has trusted the same hospital in northern Vietnam to remove the sharp tool. Doctors said that he is recovering and without a broken, rusty pair of scissors.

Difficult words: sharp (painful and intense), abdomen (belly), sharp (pointy), rusty (old and falling apart).
