As parents, our children come first. We try to feed them the best meals, take them to their extracurricular activities, and support them emotionally as much as possible. However, there are some things that are just out of our hands.
Two years ago, I remember coming across an article about a six-year-old boy who was rushed to hospital after a barbecue brush bristle got lodged in his throat. The mother was cleaning her barbecue, like we all do, and a bristle must have fallen off, wedging itself into the hamburger meat.
The poor boy had to surgically remove the wire, which then led to a throat infection, because of the bacteria that was on the bristle. It was such a horrific experience for both the boy and his mother!
Recently, a 14-year-old boy from Missouri had an even more traumatic experience after a cracker and a sandwich literally ripped open his throat, causing a deadly infection.
It was a shock not only for his family, but for the doctors as well...
