Farmer told to eat steel square by some ‘voice’

If you are looking for a nice story to submit to Ripley’s Believe or Not, then this one might fit the bill.

Some “voice” prodded a farmer, known as Edwin, from Dimiao town to swallow a steel square causing him–well–stomach ache–pointing to the obvious.

dyTR news reported that while the victim was in his home last Monday, a “voice” whispered to swallow the carpentry tool.

The farmer followed the prodding and had a hard time swallowing the steel square.

Even if the farmer has a hard time swallowing the tool, he was able to put it all in–then he started to have a nasty stomach ache.

The victim’s relatives learned what happened and brought him to the hospital.

The x-ray showed the steel square was inside the stomach of the victim. He underwent an emergency surgery to remove the steel square from his stomach.

While the relatives deny the victim has a mental affliction, but he often skip meals due to his busy schedule in the farm.
