1. An older woman in her 60’s was taken to a hospital in Brazil where she said she was suffering from severe abdominal pains. After taking some X-rays doctors discovered that she had a 20 inch skeleton of a fetus that she had conceived nearly 10 years earlier.

2. A man in Michigan entered the ER with lacerations to his penis. After doctors gave an examination to the man’s wife they found the she had a surgical instrument left inside of her after her recent hysterectomy.

3. A man from Georgia entered a local hospital after escaping from his wife. Apparently, while they were asleep his wife, who was quite a deal heavier than the man, rolled on top of him, crushing him in the middle of the night. After the incident, the wife felt so ashamed of what she had done and with her weight that she actually refused to let her husband leave to seek medical attention. Then one night, while the wife slept, the husband left the house and rushed to the nearest hospital.

4. A man who had clearly had too much to drink stumbled into an ER in Pennsylvania. He had been complaining about his inability to get his contacts out. He said that he could pull the contacts out only halfway, but they would always go back onto his eye. A nurse attempted to use a suction pump, but found that the contacts would not come out. Eventually the man would be examined by a doctor, who noticed he didn’t have any contacts in. The man had been trying to tear out the membrane of his cornea.

5. A man was scheduled for surgery in Seattle to remove a tumor in his abdomen. After the surgery, doctors let him know that the tumor had been successfully removed; however they later discovered that they left a 13-inch retractor inside the man’s abdomen. The doctor’s were able to remove the retractor without causing damage to the man.
