COLOMBIA (CBS) — A Colombian woman is giving a new meaning to putting your money where your mouth is.

The woman reportedly swallowed at least 7,000 U.S. dollars during a fight with her husband.

She says she wanted to hide the money from him, so she ate 57 rolls of $100 bills.

Doctors had to surgically remove the money from the woman’s stomach and intestines.

They expect additional rolls to pass through her colon.
