China Daily (Hong Kong) - - NATION DIGEST -

A tod­dler un­der­went surgery in the Chengdu Women and Chil­dren Cen­tral Hos­pi­tal on Satur­day to have a but­ton bat­tery re­moved from his esoph­a­gus. The 18-mon­thold swal­lowed the bat­tery by mis­take. Al­though the al­ka­line liq­uid from the bat­tery cor­roded his esoph­a­gus, he was saved af­ter an op­er­a­tion that lasted 40 min­utes.
