Gotta Watch: Unbelievable X-rays

If you're an x-ray technician, you're bound to see some unusual things. But even the most seasoned professional couldn't predict seeing a man with hedge clippers stuck in his eye or a girl with a safety pin hidden inside her body. You've gotta watch these intriguing x-rays of misplaced objects.

Shear trouble – The x-ray image is riveting. A pair of shears sits lodged inside a man's eye. How did it get there, and were doctors able to save his sight? You'll have to watch to find out.

Sinus safety – After years of sinus infections and headaches, an x-ray shows a safety pin hidden in the nasal cavity is the cause of a six-year-old girl's troubles.

Wait, what 's in his tummy? – An owner takes her dog to the veterinarian to check out its stomach woes and jokingly requests an x-ray. Imagine her surprise when the x-ray reveals 31 nails, a rabies tag and the siding of her home.

    Why why why does EVERYTHING have to be a damn embedded Flash video? Why is CNN obsessed with posting more and more stories are nothing but video? Post some articles that people can READ, not more useless videos.

    One of my friends was an ER Doctor for a while, and the things he told me people shove up their poop chute is nothing short of amazing.
    And gross.
    I believe raven's story completely, as it is one of the more common items people "sit on".

    I heard a story about a rather large woman who came into the hospital complaining of chest pain. The x-ray revealed she had a fork in her chest area. The fork was under her breast and had been for two weeks.
