& # 39; He was at risk of infection or bleeding; if it had been moved, it could have ruptured its bladder or arteries, & he added.

His mother, named Li, told reporters that she first noticed that something was wrong when she saw that her son was having trouble walking.

& # 39; I told him to speed up, but he kept walking slowly. I then started rebuking him, & Mrs. Li said. & # 39; Then he finally admitted that he was inserting a needle into his urethra because he continued to nod while performing his assignment. I was in shock. & # 39;

The acupuncture needle belonged to his grandmother and was usually kept in her drawer.

Surgeons have successfully removed the instrument during a two-hour operation and the boy is expected to fully recover.

There was a peak in similar cases in China where teenagers needed surgery to remove foreign objects from their bodies.

In January, a 12-year-old boy underwent surgery in Wuhan, Hubei Province, to remove 39 magnetic beads after inserting them into his penis.

The child, nicknamed Xiaorui, later admitted that he had inserted the beads into his penis out of curiosity.

In May last year, a 14-year-old toddler in Qinhuangdao, Hebei Province, had to undergo surgery to remove 21 magnetic beads after swallowing them from toys.

The balls had formed a ring in his abdomen, causing fever and severe vomiting.
