A 14-year old boy from Indonesia claims to be have laid around 20 eggs in the last two years, leaving doctors completely befuddled. These are chicken eggs, as reported by an Indonesian website named insidercarnews.com. At present, the boy is being treated at the Syech Yusuf Hospital where he laid two eggs in the presence of the doctors. Doctors examining him have confirmed that the eggs are indeed of a hen. The boy, Akmal, had reportedly been admitted to the hospital earlier as well, for the same condition. The doctors claim that the eggs “were shoved into” his rectum before he was admitted to the hospital.
Akmal hails from Gowa in Indonesia and says he has been regularly laying eggs since 2016. Daily Mail quotes Akmal’s father Rusi saying, ‘In two years he laid 18 eggs and two today, so in total there have been 20. I cracked the first egg and its content was all yellow, no white.’ Doctors, however, have clarified that scientifically (chicken) eggs cannot be formed inside the human body. Akmal has been put under observation with no access to eggs to check whether the eggs are being formed inside him naturally or not. News reports state that the eggs ‘laid’ by Akmal were cracked open to see what was inside them. And the doctors found either only yolk or all egg-white.
A spokesperson from the hospital has been quoted saying that the doctors suspect that the eggs were deliberately shoved into Akmal’s rectum. Akmal’s father has however denied this. He told the local media, ‘He never swallowed eggs whole, why would he do that?’ Akmal has been repeatedly admitted to the hospital for this condition. Doctors believe that scientifically it seems improbable that chicken eggs survive inside the human body. However, at the same time they , ere intrigued by whatever be the method that boy uses to do it.
