A Woman Can't Recall How A Turtle Ended Up In Her Vagina After Night Out, Police Say

Last Saturday, an unnamed woman suffered from an inexplicable pain in her lower abdomen and checked herself into an emergency room.

What doctors found as the source of her discomfort was absolutely the last thing anyone could imagine.


Her pain was due to an infection caused by a dead turtle found inside the woman's vagina.

Spanish publication site El Dia claimed that doctors at a Mojón de Arona medical center south of the Canary Island of Tenerife called the local police after making the unsettling discovery.

According to the Daily Mail, the Spanish daily ABC reported:

"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."

The 26-year-old British expat told police she had been partying with other British friends a few nights earlier at Fañabé beach, but had no recollection as to how the dead reptile wound up lodged inside her that night, according to El Pais.



But police sense foul play, as it is not plausible that the reptile made its way inside the woman on its own.

Authorities theorize that either she or someone else placed the Chinese pond turtle inside her body. It remains unclear whether the turtle was dead or alive when it entered her.



Analysis showed that the turtle was a freshwater species often found in pet shops.

El Pais confirmed that the extracted reptile was not a tortoise, but a baby turtle, which can grow up to 18 centimeters (3.15 inches) once matured.

The woman chose not to file a complaint and did not confirm nor deny she might have been the victim of sexual assault.



The El Pais report said that the public prosecutor in Santa Cruz de Tenerife is still collecting evidence in the case after the police closed their investigation.

Nuestra Señora de La Candelaria Hospital simultaneously started an investigation after photos of the bloodied reptile extracted from the woman's body began circulating on the WhatsApp communications app.




The New York Post reported that none of the hospital staff members could be reached for further comments when The Sun Online tried reaching out.

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

And aside from the mass shootings, the number of single gunshot wounds or deaths is too high to count.

So let's discuss the aftermath.

Let's hear from the people who have faced the barrel of a loaded gun, or were just a casualty going about their day.

What happens after the bullet lands?

It's never attractive to gloat.

Nor does superiority ever come off as a particularly attractive attribute.

But, consciously or not, some people speak or behave in a way that immediately suggests that they think they deserve to be treated differently, i.e better than others.

Or that they believe they simply are better than other people.

A recent Redditor was curious what sort of behavior struck other people as elitist or arrogant behavior by asking:

"What screams "I am entitled"?"

There's something about the woods that creeps me out. Listen here, people: I'm a city guy. The idea of getting lost out there freaks me out. No thank you. I wasn't made for that. The rest of you who like to go camping and stuff? You do you. I'll stick with my running water.

But maybe I've seen too many horror movies. After all, if I saw some creepy stuff in the woods I'd definitely run in the other direction. And so would you, right? Right?

We're all not geniuses.

Everybody has varying degrees of knowledge and brain power.

And that is ok.

Though some of us are really lacking in any sense and every once and awhile people like to sugarcoat that fact when they call us out.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."
