A 9-year-old boy in China inserted four sewing needles into his stomach after he scored 99% in his examination.
According to the father of the boy, he had first noticed lumps on his stomach as he was bathing but the child did not let him get a closer look. Some days later the boy had terrible stomach pains and was rushed to the 2nd Affiliated Hospital of Harbin Medical University.
At the hospital, the doctors discovered he had needles in stomach and it took them 2 hours to remove the needles which were burrowed deep into his stomach.
According to the boy from Harbin in Heilongjiang Province, it was a form of punishment to atone his 1% failure.
