37. The Convenience Store Hamburger

June 7, 2008

“HYOGO — Police on Tuesday said that a 19-year-old man was taken to hospital on Sunday night after he swallowed a 1-cm fish hook inside a hamburger that his mother bought for him at a FamilyMart convenience store in Himeji City, Hyogo Prefecture.

According to police, the man’s mother bought the “tartar burger” around 4 p.m. and heated it up for her son that night. He complained of a severe stomach ache around 8 p.m. and was taken to hospital. An X-ray revealed the hook inside his stomach.

Police said a second hook was found inside the burger’s wrapping paper and believe they may have been deliberately placed in the burger.”
