Sea Snail Hatches in Boy’s Knee



Sea-snail-in-kneeA sea snail has grown and hatched in a boy’s knee!

Paul Franklin, from Aliso Viejo in Orange County, fell and grazed his knee on rocks whilst on a summer camping trip.

According to reports, the wound became swollen after three weeks, and that’s when the boy’s mother, Rachel Franklin, decided to take him to urgent care.

Doctors first believed he had a staph infection, but after a course of antibiotics, the wound did not heal and began turning black.

Against the doctor’s orders, Paul’s mom squeezed the wound to drain it. That’s when a living snail emerged from the kneecap.

Paul is keeping the snail as a pet. He’s named him Turbo.
