A 51-year-old villager named Bo Chunlou from Ju County in Rizhao, eastern Shandong, China, accidentally found a way to become a millionaire after slaughtering one of his pigs.
The extremely rare object, which is known as a bezoar, is a small, stony solid mass that is formed in an animal’s gastrointestinal system. It is comprised of hairy materials and other indigestible products, measuring 4 inches long and 2.7 inches wide, and is believed to be worth 4 million yuan ($604,240).
Over 200 stones were removed from a 45-year-old Chinese woman’s body after a successful operation, which lasted for six and a half hours.
Surgeons performed the procedure on the patient, identified only as Ms. Chen, on July 15 at the Guangji Hospital in Hezhou, China, reports Daily Mail.
