A diet that's too rich for him
A pound of gold found in Indian man’s stomach
Gold has been stashed in all sorts of places — under mattresses, inside caves, in teeth.
This may be the rare occasion, however, that gold has been found in someone’s stomach.
Thursday morning, news broke that a 63-year-old New Delhi businessman went to the doctor complaining about pain in his gut. He told the doctor he had swallowed a bottle cap “in anger,” because that totally makes sense.
But surprise! It was actually gold. And not just a little bit. Doctors found 12 small bars of gold in his gut — weighing nearly one pound. They’re also called “gold biscuits.” The gold was valued at $20,000.
