Doctors Didn’t Believe Her When She Said This Was Inside Her - They Were Wrong

A woman went to a doctor and begged him to check her arm. She told him she had a tracking device that was planted in there.

The doctor thought she was more in need of psychological help, because her claim sounded too much like a science fiction movie. But it turns out, she was perfectly sane, and what was happening to her was real.

In an attempt to protect the victim, the Doctor is known only as Dr. A, according to AWM.com. He took a look at the woman's arm.

He noticed a small cut, and eventually, he found a small device about the size of a grain of rice. It was, indeed, a tracking device, a type regularly used in cats and dogs so their owners can have them tracked down if they're lost.

“Embedded in the right side of her flank is a small metallic object only a little bit larger than a grain of rice — but it’s there," the stunned doctor said. "It’s unequivocally there. She has a tracker in her. And no one was speaking for like five seconds — and in a busy ER, that’s saying something."

The woman didn't claim the tracker came from a corrupt government or little green men, like in a sci-fi flick. Instead, she told a more harrowing tale. The woman is a victim of human trafficking.

When she was in her twenties, her live-in boyfriend began pimping her out to other men. He would keep all the money.

Dr. A noted that 'someone had tagged her like an animal, like she was somebody's pet that they owned'.

Usually, human trafficking fell in the jurisdiction of law enforcement. Now, more and more health care workers are beginning to wake up to the fact that they see victims all the time.

People in the health care industry are realizing that just as they can prevent child abuse when reporting suspicions, they can keep their eyes open and report suspicions of trafficking. One poll found that over 87 percent of victims have come in contact with some kind of health-care provider at some point.

“I can guarantee you that I’ve placed my hands and I’ve examined and I’ve spoken to more trafficking victims than I know I have,” said one ER doctor to Marketplace.org.

Dr. Dale Carrison at the University Medical Center in Las Vegas says that RDIF chips are game-changers. “That was a big wake up call for me personally that ‘Uh-oh we're going to another level now.’ And I need to get the word out to all my colleagues, don’t blow this off.”
