Digs down even deeper with the revelation that the only weird part about this is they got that result with only one battery - that it's pretty common with multiples.  How many dumb motherfarkers are there that nom batteries often enough and in sufficient quantity to make this a, "Day ending in Y" sorta thing?

An MRI would have clarified his health status.

Stomachs have hydrochloric acids, which are decent conductor of electricity. Depending on the concentration, the acid will have a 100 to 1000+ ohms of resistance. Even at the higher end of the 1000 ohm range a 1.6 volt battery - it will output .0016 amps.  Enough to trickle charge a fellow.

What if a D battery ends up inside one's rectum?  Could there be any potential health problems?

"Previously, these EKG changes were described only in persons who swallowed several batteries," they wrote.

Quite likely to "dead" following traumatic battery extraction.
