November 5, 2016 – Woman Who Farted During Laser Surgery At Tokyo Medical Hospital Suffers Severe Burn

A recent report released by the Tokyo Medical University Hospital in Shinjuku Ward revealed that a patient suffered burns on most of her body after farting during a laser surgery.

The incident occurred in April but only grabbed headlines recently after a team of external experts conducted a thorough investigation into the matter and concluded that it was most likely caused by the gas passed by the patient, which was ignited by the surgical laser.

The anonymous patient, a woman in her 30s, was undergoing an operation that involved applying a laser to her cervix, the lower part of the uterus, when intestinal gas leaked out and was set ablaze by the irradiation of the laser.

“When the patient’s intestinal gas leaked into the space of the operation, it ignited with the irradiation of the laser, and the burning spread, eventually reaching the surgical drape and causing the fire,” the experts’ report stated.

Unfortunately, the woman was left screaming in agony after she suffered burns on much of her body, including her waist and legs.

The report, according to Asahi Shimbun, released by the Tokyo hospital on October 28, also mentioned that no flammable materials were in the operation room at the time of the surgery and that the equipment for the operation was functioning normally.

  1. THANKS BE to God for her survival.

    ON A LIGHTER NOTE, “MESS” IS powerful o! Filling Stations should henceforth place “No Messing” signs along their “No Smoking” signs, since fire could comes from where you don’t expect these days. Scientists should dive into more researches because this could be a good news. Who knows if one day, fart would be used to power the automobile engine.

  2. Metu you make me to urinate on my trouser this morning as ia m laughing over your comments,i wish Nigerian comedian will notice your talent and help you to devolop it,have a nice weekend for making me feel better this morning.
    God bless you ooo.

  3. That noisy and sometimes silent but invicible air that come out of the Anus at times with foul smell can cause so much havoc o.

    It can dismiss a gathering pronto, it can bring a moment of sexual ecstacy to an abrupt stop, it can make a Teacher flog a whole class etc…
    Thank God that her “Kini“ was not affected.

    I take a stroll…

  4. @Metu, power engine with fart? Wow, but quite a thought all the same !!! Stories like these go to show just how little we know about the human anatomy and how it functions AND conversely how great GOD is to put together the human body with its complex units. For all we know farts might be acidic and when you think of how many times that particular toxic waste is released into the atmosphere with apparently no harm to the neighborhood than few minutes of foul smell, you just have to be thankful that all the things we take for granted do not exhibit their true potentials at all times!
    But the situation in this story is embarrassing a beg, for how does one explain that burns all over the body was caused by mere fart?

  5. Lol…this is funny…I just showed my father this story and he called the whole family warning us never to fart when latern is on..or even stove,lighter,matches and even our gas cooker…..strong warning I mean…
