Several physicians and a nurse are facing charges in the Philippines after a video of them removing a deodorant can from a patient's rectum made it to YouTube. Members of the medical staff are laughing it up during the procedure. From the Daily Telegraph:
At one point, a hand appears with a cell phone camera taking a close-up picture of the surgery.
As a doctor gingerly pulls out the 6-inch long canister from the male patient's rectum, someone shouts, "Baby out!" amid loud cheers...
The 39-year-old received surgery in January, three days after a New Year's drinking spree and a "one-night stand" with a male partner. He was too drunk to remember how the body spray canister ended up in his body.
The government-run Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center in the central city of Cebu, where the surgery took place, is conducting an investigation.
