    Doctors find 6 sewing needles in baby

    BEIJING - Doctors in southern China were planning to perform surgery on a 1-year-old boy whose parents took him to a hospital because he had been unusually fussy and learned he had six sewing needles in his body, newspapers reported Monday.

    The child's parents, migrant workers from southwest China, said they had no idea how the needles ended up in their son, nicknamed Xiao Yu.

    The Beijing Youth Daily ran a color photo of an X-ray showing five needles throughout the boy's torso. The Beijing Morning Post printed close-ups of the X-ray, plus another that showed a needle that had apparently been pushed through the top of the child's head.

    The photographs showed the needles completely embedded inside the boy.

    "We have to perform the surgery as soon as possible, but we cannot promise that we can remove all the needles," the doctor, Gu Yong, was quoted as saying.

    The parents said they took Xiao Yu to a hospital on June 2 after he cried for three or four nights in a row and ate less than usual.

    An X-ray taken there revealed two needles inside the boy's chest. He was sent for surgery at another hospital, where a second X-ray revealed four more needles — two in his scrotum, one in his head and another in his abdomen.

    The parents, who work at a bag factory in southern China's Guangzhou city, said no strangers have come into contact with the boy.

    ONE needle is a terrible accident.....6 needles in seperate parts of that babies body is child abuse to the extreme!
    Hopefully the baby will be ok.....
    For the life of me I cannot understand how anyone could ever harm a child.
