New Delhi, Mar 19 (ANI): In a rather bizarre incident, a Chinese doctor mistakenly diagnosed a woman with pneumonia after he saw a shadow in the X-ray exam, which was actually the padding in her bra.

The woman, who was coughing due to cold and felling chest pain, went to see a doctor in Nanjing, Jiangsu province.

And when the doctor saw the shadow in the lower part of her right lung, he told her that she was suffering from pneumonia.

However, she kept coughing acutely even after receiving a drip, reports the China Daily.

When her boyfriend took her to another doctor for examination, the same ring shadow was seen in the X ray, but the second doctor realized it was not pneumonia.

And it was revealed that the woman just had a normal cold, and the shadow was only the padding she added to the right side of the bra to make her breasts look even. (ANI)
