Woman Found 23 Needles in Her Body

Luo Cuifen, 29, went to the doctor after finding blood in her urine. An X-ray revealed that she has 23 inch-long needles embedded in her vital organs, probably done by her grandparents:

Qu said doctors believe the woman's grandparents may have inserted the needles long ago, hoping she would die and her parents might have a boy in her place. China limits most families to just one child, although rural Chinese may be allowed to have a second if their first is a girl, subject to the payment of fines.

It wasn't clear whether further investigations into the case were planned, with media reports saying Luo's grandparents had already died.
