Chinese man had large knife embedded in skull for 4 years.
A Chinese man who had complained of headaches for several years and been examined by multiple physicians was found to have a 4" long, now rusted blade embedded in his skull. The man says he has no idea how the knife got into his head but he's happy to have it gone. Doctors say it is remarkable that the knife failed to cut or injure any major arteries or other vital parts of the man's brain.
Despite wide publicity, no one has come forward to claim ownership of the knife.
A Chinese lawyer said after 4 years inside the man's head he probably had acquired ownership of the knife by prescription and any claims to the knife by others would likely be barred by the legal doctrine of laches.
