Girl Accidentally Inhales Something Dangerous Before Prom

A teen on the way to her prom accidentally inhaled something without even realizing it. She went to the dance anyway, but the next day she ended up getting surgery.

Kathleen Garvey of Massachusetts tried to help adjust her prom date's boutonniere before their date. She gripped the small pin in her mouth when her date made her laugh, which turned into coughing.

The pin was nowhere to be found.

“Oh my God, did you swallow it?” her date asked.

“I don’t know,” she admitted, but Kathleen felt fine and the two went on to the prom.

Word spread quickly about the comical incident, but security at the prom venue didn't find it so funny. They wanted to take Kathleen straight to the hospital. She had to call her parents, who spoke to security and convinced them to let her stay. Kathleen thought she just lost the pin and doubted that she swallowed it.

The next day, her mother took her to the doctor just to be safe. It's a good thing she got an X-ray-- the pin was stuck in her bronchial tube. Kathleen went into surgery and doctors removed the pin. Thankfully, it didn't do much damage, nor did it interfere with a memorable night.
