IN A bizarre case that has puzzled both medical staff and police officers in Chipata, a three-year-old boy has been found with 36 needles imbedded in his body.
The boy, who is from Muchini township in Chipata, is admitted to Chipata Central Hospital.
Chipata Central Hospital senior medical superintendent Mbinga Mbinga described the condition of the boy as stable.
Dr Mbinga said one needle was removed; however, the boy could not be operated on to remove all the needles because he is severely malnourished.
