Mobile boy swallowed what?????

Mobile County


A Mobile mother tells News 5’s Devon Walsh that her twenty-month-old son swallowed one of her hair barrettes on Monday. She did not want her name used. 

She says she heard her son make a strange “burp and gag” noise.  They later took him to USA Children’s and Women’s Hospital. Doctors have waited a couple of days to see if it would come out on its own, but it hasn’t. He will have to have a scope done tomorrow at the hospital.

When asked how the little guy was feeling today. She said he is his same “silly self.”

The x-ray is startling, for sure!  No doubt, little children will swallow just about anything!
