35 -year – old married woman Faustina Richster’s finger was nearly chopped off after she bought a wedding ring from her friend to replace her lost ring.

Faustina Richter revealed that her original wedding ring was lost some months ago so she consulted her friend who sells rings for replacement.

In an interview with Utv news Faustina Richster indicated that, after putting the ring on her finger, her hand started swelling after a day.

She said all efforts to remove the stuck ring from her hand yielded no results, it took the intervention of medical officers from Kasoa Mother and Child Hospital and pastors before the ring was able to cut off.
