A toothbrush was removed from the gut of a Chinese man 20 years after he was swallowed for suicide.
An angry man pulled a toothbrush down his throat to commit suicide at a jail. Even the toothbrush had reached its small intestine, moving slowly. Doctors had warned that if toothpaste was not removed, it could have caused severe damage to the liver, leading to death.
The man was released, but a toothbrush has recently been removed. The toothbrush is completely black and unrecognizable and the plastic fibers have also been removed. After a long operation toothpaste is extracted from the small intestine.
