Doctors have discovered seven sewing needles lodged in the body of three-year-old child at Kapenguria County Referral Hospital in West Pokot.
The metals were discovered through an X-Ray scan conducted on Wednesday. Five needles are in the girl’s belly and two in tissues around the back.
The baby was abandoned by her mother because of her frequent sickness over the last one year. She has been under the care of her grandparents who said their daughter eloped with another man.
According to her grandparents, the child has been complaining of stomachaches and been endlessly coughing for the past one year.
