In 1992, a woman in Guangxi Province, China, went to the hospital with abdominal pain. Doctors discovered she had a chicken inside her. The chicken had been there for 18 years.
The woman, who was in her 60s, told doctors she began to feel pain in her abdomen about 18 years prior. She thought it was gas pain and did not seek medical attention. When the pain became more severe, she went to the hospital.
Doctors found the chicken in her abdomen and removed it. The chicken was alive and healthy. It is unclear how the chicken got inside the woman.
The woman recovered from the surgery and was discharged from the hospital. It is not clear if she ever found out how the chicken got inside her.
