A crazy diamond saga in Sri Lanka has taken an unexpected twist. Last week, a Chinese man, Chou Wan, was arrested in Sri Lanka after he swallowed a 1.5 carat diamond at a gem fair. Well, after authorities gave the guy laxatives and dug through his poop, experts then discovered the rock was a fake. Apparently, there was another Chinese dude with Chou who is now suspected to have the real diamond, worth $13,000.
All I gotta say is, I would hate to be part of that diamond “excavation” team! Blech!
