Crazy World: Tot swallows 42 magnets

RUSSIA: A toddler who swallowed more than 40 magnets had to be operated upon by a team of surgeons in Russia's Chelyabinsk.

The child's mother panicked when she saw that all the magnets from the refrigerator were missing. She rushed to the nearest hospital to get the tot checked out.

And sure as she had predicted, all 42 of those magnets showed up inside the child's stomach when the little one was made to undergo an ultrasound scan.

The doctor who performed the surgery told the media that in his entire career, he had taken a lot of objects out of the little ones' systems, but this one had created a new record by swallowing so many of them at the same time.
