Police are questioning a woman from Britain after medics detected a deceased turtle inside her vagina, says reports.
Stunned staff at an A&E department in Tenerife made the bizarre discovery after the woman arrived whining of pain in her genital area.
The unspecified woman, who has been called a Brit expat, has allegedly picked up an infection caused by the dead reptile. The size of the tetrapod animal has not been revealed.
According to a local newspaper, the woman had hinted to friends she felt ill a couple of days after she had been out carousing with them.
The woman is reported to have ‘no clue’ how the turtle ended up where it did.“This incident did happen and the reports are true. The woman does not know how the reptile ended up where it did and we don’t either,” said police; Photo: The Mary Sue
Local media has told that employees at the El Mojon hospital in Arona, in the south of the island, called in National Police who are now set to interrogate the woman about how the creature got into her private parts.
“A woman of British origin went to A&E at El Mojon in Arona, Tenerife, on Saturday because she felt pain in her private parts,” said Spanish outlet ABC.
“The duty doctors inspected her and saw that her discomfort was due to the fact that the woman, who lives on the island, had a dead turtle inside her vagina which had caused a serious infection.”
Reporters who phoned the hospital were told by health officials that they could not comment on the instance as it would be a breach of data security.
A police source in Tenerife stated: “This incident did happen and the reports are true. The woman does not know how the reptile ended up where it did and we don’t either.”
