Wife Swallows $7,000 In Attempt To Hide Money From Her Husband

Such a dangerous act. A Colombian woman who had a bitter fight with

her husband angrily swallowed $7,000 in an attempt to keep the money away from his sight.

In an interview with the local RCN television channel, the woman said she had been saving the money for a vacation with her husband before swallowing it.

Luckily for the 30-year-old woman, doctors at the University Hospital of Santander in Colombia were able to extract the bills through surgery, after she swallowed them in rolls of $100 bills.

Director of Surgery at the University Hospital of Santander, Juan Paulo Serrano, said they were able to surgically extract 57 $100 bills from the woman’s stomach and intestines, while other rolls would be passed through the colon.

He said the rolls were not wrapped or packaged, which suggests they were not part of any illegal transport and simply swallowed in an ‘act of desperation.’
