    Sagaya Fernando Mumbai: 28 September 2022     In a bizarre case, doctors in India surgically removed 62 spoons from the stomach and one spoon lodged in the intestine of a patient.   The patient named Vijay was brought to Evan Hospital in Muzaffarnagar city of Uttar Pradesh, India, in the second week of September by his family members claiming that he had eaten a steel spoon.   “The patient did not complain of any abdominal pain, but I conducted an examination of his stomach and came to the conclusion that some foreign objects are lodged in his stomach,” said surgeon Dr Rakesh Khurana who conducted the surgery.   The doctor asked the patient to undergo an X-ray examination and was aghast to discover multiple spoons lodged in the patient’s stomach and one in the intestine.   “On being asked, the patient admitted that he had been ingesting spoons for the past one year,” said Dr Khurana.   Sensing the seriousness of the case, the patient was asked to undergo surgery at the earliest.  

Wild tusker trips in to a well, rescued safely by forest officials

Wild tusker trips in to a well, rescued safely by forest officials

Mumbai: 1 July 2020

A wild elephant that accidentally fell into an open well in the south Indian state of Kerala in the wee hours of July 1, was safely rescued by forest department officials in a four hours long rescue operation.

The tusker apparently strayed into a private farm located in the small town of Pooyamkutty which is surrounded by a forest by the same name, in the night in search of food. It slipped and fell into a 25-feet deep open well in the farm. The villagers notified the forest department officials who rushed to the spot with a JCB digger, and after pacifying the local residents who wanted action from the forest officials to address the man-animal conflict taking place very often in the area, commenced rescue operation at around 6 am.

In the meanwhile, the agitated elephant rolled over inside the well and raised its trunk to reach the edge of the well in an attempt to climb out. Unable to climb out, it continued splashing in the well water.

By 10 am, the forest staff had clawed out a sloping path with the help of the JCB. The elephant somehow managed to clamber onto the dug slope, but being completely exhausted by its ordeal, it lay sideways for some minutes. With the local people who gathered to see the rescue operation making a din, the elephant got up on its feet and ran towards the road. Seeing some motorcycles parked nearby, it vented out its frustration by kicking a couple of bikes and ran into the forest.

“The tusker is a 7-year-old sub-adult. It fell into the well which was about 20 meters away from a road. We used a JCB to dig a sloping trench, so the elephant could come out. The elephant returned unharmed to the forest and is being monitored by a team,” said Ravi Kumar, officer in-charge of the Divisional Forest Office.
