An Israeli woman swallowed a cockroach and, right after it,
a fork she used to fish the critter out of her throat.
A winged cockroach jumped into the woman’s mouth as she was
cleaning her home, and as she tried to scoop the bug out with a fork,
she swallowed the fork as well. An x-ray (above) shows the fork,
lodged sideways in the woman’s stomach. The surgeon removed the
fork with laparoscopic surgery, but didn’t need to remove the
cockroach - it was already digested.
The woman recovered, and fared better than the old woman of the
children’s rhyme: “There was an old woman who swallowed a fly.
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly. Perhaps she’ll die.”
