(Scroll down for video) A wife in Colombia, was devastated after learning that her husband was having an affair with another woman behind her back.
30-year-old Sandra Milena Almeida of Piedecuesta, decided to make sure that her husband will not be able to get his hands on their life savings.
Almeida did not tell her husband that she found out about his affair, and over the course of several weeks, she ate $9,000 worth of $100 bills.
After developing severe stomach pain, Almeida was rushed to the University Hospital of Santander. Doctors took X-rays of her stomach, and noticed that it was stuffed with what appeared to be bank notes.
At first, doctors thought she was a drug mule, but Almeida then revealed that she ate her life savings because her husband was cheating on her with another woman.
Doctors rushed her into surgery, and were able to remove 57 $100 bills. Most bills were in her stomach, but some have moved into her colon.
The $5,700 was washed and is in good condition. The remaining $3,300 was digested and excreted.
Almeida said that she is planning to use the money for a luxury vacation, which seems to be a better way to make the money disappear than to eat it.
Luckily, the woman is expected to make a full recovery.
