The Vietnamese man was completely oblivious to the scissors until December, when he suffered a road accident and was given an x-ray which revealed their presence, Efe news agency reported.

Doctors retrieved the rusty 15 centimetre (6 inches) long scissors from his stomach on Saturday at a hospital in Thai Nguyen province, northern Vietnam, in a three-hour surgery.

The scissors were broken and found on the left side of his torso, showed the reports.

The Ministry of Health has ordered an investigation into the case. (IANS)
