Being a physician myself, I say we experience a loads of X-Rays each day but sometimes they are incredibly odd leaving us in wonder how and why it’s like this.

This is the incredible X-ray that unlocked the mystery of what happened to a door key a student ‘lost’ on a drunken night out. Hungover Chris Foster, 18, had no memory of swallowing the 5cm (2in) key in a bizarre drunken stunt – until his friends and the NHS helped him piece together the events of the night before.
