Bank the Turtle has 915 coins removed from her insides

Surgeons in Thailand have removed 915 coins from inside Bank the Sea Turtle and the 25-year-old is recovering nicely. The coins were tossed into Banks pool by visitors looking for good luck. The swallowed coins formed an 11-pound (5 kilograms) mass in the sea turtle’s stomach and the weight of the metal eventually cracked Bank’s ventral (underside) shell, leading to infection, the AP reported.
