A teenager from Gowa, Indonesia laid an egg in front of medical practitioners after his family brought him to a clinic.
The family of the 14-year-old boy named Akmal claimed that he has laid 20 eggs already in the last two years.
Medics are not sold on the idea that a human can develop a poultry egg inside his body. They suspect that the eggs were put inside the youngster.
X-ray result also showed that Akmal has one egg inside his body and his family said it was proof that they are telling the truth.
“In two years he laid 18 eggs and 2 today, so in total there have been 20. I cracked the first egg and its content was all yellow, no white,” said Rusli, Akmal’s father.
A hospital spokesman said: “Our suspicion is that the eggs were deliberately shoved into Akmal’s rectum. But we did not see it directly.”
Doctors are now keeping a close eye on Akmal, placing him in quarantine at the Syekh Yusuf Hospital in Gowa.
