When surgeons operated on Schroeder again, they were stunned to find 16 pieces of medical equipment in the man's body. This included "a needle, a six-inch roll of bandage, a six-inch long compress, several swabs and a fragment of surgical mask," writes the Daily Mail.Words fail. I mean I've left 8 or 9 items inside a patient before, but 16? Just kidding. I don't do that sort of thing. The best was the hospital's official response:
The facility claims that the instruments may have found their way into Schroeder's body "post-operation," according to German publication Osnabrücker Zeitung.
Very similar to OJ Simpson's claims that Nicole's exsanguinating throat wounds must have occured "post-visit" after a lovely afternoon of scones and green tea and pleasant conversation about the kids and the coming Mostly Mozart Festival at the LA Symphony.
