Doctors in Brazil have removed four needles from the lung and near the heart of a boy who was reportedly subjected to black magic.
A hospital spokesperson told Fox News the two-year-old boy was in a stable condition but more operations would be needed to remove dozens more needles still inside him.
The four needles removed were thought to be the most threatening to his life.
His stepfather confessed to inserting the needles after being advised to perform a ritual killing.
