A male resident of the Romanian city of Bacau, 25-year-old Radu Kalincesku, was admitted to hospital after he had a drunk bet with a friend of his. The young man said that he would be able to swallow a fork without any consequences for his body. However, the man felt ill immediately after the trick.
The man originally told doctors that he felt pain in the esophagus - he preferred to conceal the actual reason that caused the pain. When the doctors did an X-ray examination, they found an image of the foreign object in the man's body.
However, the doctors did not operate the man immediately. They sent him home to give the fork an opportunity to come out of the body by itself. If, after a while, it turns out that the fork has reached the stomach, the man will be operated on.
The man promised not to make any bets while drinking.
