Parents Devastated By What Doctors Discover In Toddler's Stomach

Ava Kendall, 2, is a Texas toddler who began screaming in pain, clutching her stomach. Her mother, Lexi Kendall, had no idea what was wrong but rushed her to an emergency medical clinic.

Doctors told her she had a bad case of the stomach flu, but that was not the right diagnosis. Physicians performed a scan on Ava and found that she had nine magnets in her intestines. According to ABC 13, the littler girl had swallowed nine magnets that were hanging on the family's refrigerator.

Her father had received silver magnets as a gift from Sweden when he was once an exchange student there. They were silver balls that looked like cake decorations. In just a short period of time, the magnets burrowed into her intestines and created many holes.

Lexi said, “Magnets find each other, even through skin." In addition, she had developed an infection. Furthermore, Ava had to undergo emergency surgery to remove them. Ava is in intensive care, fighting for her life.

Lexi stated “Don’t have any magnets. If you have magnets, get them away. On top of a bookshelf or refrigerator isn’t enough.”
