STUPID HILLBILLY NEWS: A Sword-Swallower Was Hospitalized With Injuries Consistent With…Swallowing Swords

If you’ve ever watched an entertainer swallowing swords and thought, “how in the hell can they do this without slicing themselves up?” Well, sometimes they do.

A 59-year-old man from San Diego named Scott Nelson is a sword swallower, who’s also known as “Murrugun the Mystic.”

He was performing at a Six Flags in Maryland back on October 31st, and that night he was hospitalized. He said, “Five swords scissored out in my abdominal cavity. It also appears that I pierced the lobe of my liver.

He said, “good news is…I’ve quit smoking and lost over 50 pounds.” He set up a GoFundMe to help with his medical bills, and he’s already raised more than $4,000. 

Thankfully, his injuries weren’t life-threatening but it was close. He’s not out of the woods yet. He’s still in the hospital, and wasn’t able to eat for a month.
