Unbelievable!!! Doctors in Kunming, China have discovered 26 sewing needles in the body of a 32-year-old woman from rural Songming County in Yunnan Province.

The needles were discovered only when Luo Cuifen'swent to hospital complaining of blood in her urine. An X-ray taken there revealed 26 needles completely embedded inside her body. Some of these needles have penetrated vital organs, such as the lungs, liver and kidneys. One has even broken into three pieces in the woman's brain. Until now, she had been in good health.

They are planning to perform several complicated operations on the woman, and the first of those is expected to take place next week. The first operation (cost $22,500 or£11,200) will be free of charge, but she have to raise money to fund the other operations.

Doctors believe the needles were inserted into the woman when she was just a few days old by her grandparents, who they believe were disappointed that she was not a boy.
