Crocodile strolls into Karnataka village

Crocodile strolls into Karnataka village Sumesh Rajan 4 July 2021 A huge crocodile made a surprise visit to Kogilban village near the resort town of Dandeli in Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka, on July 1, scaring the wits out of the villagers. The reptile had come out of the nearby Kali river, which meanders through the Kali Tiger Reserve (earlier known as Dandeli-Anshi Tiger Reserve), in the district. Fortunately, it did not attack anyone, nor the humans following it at a distance or those taking videos of it. The crocodile walked at a leisurely pace and did not even bother the stray dogs that came near it. The villagers contacted the forest department officials who rushed to the spot and captured it, before releasing it unharmed into the river. According to wildlife officials, Kali river has a sizable population of crocodiles. Keeping that in mind, a crocodile park has been set up in Dandeli.

5-year-old Hammad of Meerut city in Uttar Pradesh, India, while playing, innocently swallowed a 22 millimeter diameter Rs 5 coin not knowing the deadly consequences of it, on January 27.

 

His parents came to know about it later only when the child started crying of pain in his stomach. On coming to know that he had swallowed a coin, they initially tried to flush it out of his body by giving laxatives and liquids to the child.

 

But, when the coin did not come out naturally, and was causing immense pain in the abdomen of the child, the next day the parents rushed him to Pediatric Gastroenterologist and Hepatologist Dr Shubham Jain, who runs the Shubham Hospital & Child Care Centre in Meerut.

 

“The 5-year-old child weighing around 15 kg was brought to me on January 28 after 24 hours of him ingesting the Rs 5 coin. The child swallowed the coin on January 27 at around 12 in the afternoon, and post-ingestion the parents tried to remove the coin by giving laxatives and liquids so that the coin could come out naturally in the stool. But as the coin didn’t come out naturally and was causing pain in the child’s abdomen and difficulty in swallowing food, the parents brought him to me,” said Dr Jain. 

 

“On January 28 at around 4 pm, the coin was successfully removed by endoscopy process without causing any damage to the internal organs of the child. Special care was taken because of the child’s tender age and slender weight,” said Dr Jain.

 

“The Rs 5 coin has blunt edges due to which ulcers were formed inside the child’s abdomen. This is the reason that gastroscope should be used to remove any foreign body,” said Dr Jain, who is incidentally Meerut’s first Pediatric Gastroenterologist & Hepatologist.

 

“Right now the child is absolutely fine and there is no pain in the abdomen,” he added.
