Indonesian Woman Grows Wires from her Stomach

You heard right. This is the newest news out of Indonesia. NOORSYAIDAH. A 40 years old kindergarten teacher from Sangatta, East Kutai (I can't even find this place on the map) has developed a slight problem over the years – She grows wire from her stomach. The first symptoms started in 1991 and have since continued. The wires vary in size from 10 to 20 cm long.

One of her sisters said that she tried to help by trimming the wires. Alas, whenever she trimmed the wires, the wire retreated as if it were hiding and then popped up in another part of Noorsyaidah’s body.

I truly don’t know what to make of this, and neither do experts.

There have been 4 Medical Specialists taking this matter seriously and have treated her in several ways. And as the result, doctors can’t figure out what exactly is happening to her. The doctors have taken an X-Ray image from her stomach and found that there are more than 40 metal wires inside her and some of them are bursting out of her skin.

Imagine the hell she must go through at airports.

Currently, the Ministry of Health (who knows which one) is investigated this matter.
