Leech removed from boy's anus
A seven-year-old boy was warded at a hospital in Kota Baru to remove a leech which entered his anus while fishing at a swamp near his house in Kampung Paya Rambai.
Mohd Farhan Adli Mohd Alpatah said on Sunday he only noticed the leech, measuring the size of an adult thumb, when he suffered rectal bleeding while defaecating.
He said he informed his parents before he was warded at the Hospital Raja Perempuan Zainab II.
Mohd Farhan Adli, a pupil of Sekolah Kebangsaan Kampung Chengal, Kerteh will be discharged from the hospital after the leech is removed in the next two days.
