A seven-year old girl who weeps stones is baffling doctors who are unable to say what is causing the phenomenon.
This Indian girl, Kura Nitya, has been weeping stones from her right eye since October 26, according to newspaperTamil Nesan.
Her grandfather commented: "Initially, we thought it was some divine power and prayed to God for this phenomenon to stop."
Nitya apparently cries between 12 and 25 stones a day, and said that her right eye swells before they painlessly fall out.
Despite the oddity, an ophthalmologist has declared the young girl medically fit.
