Boy honks after swallowing toy horn

Boy honks after swallowing toy horn”

An unfortunate young boy was left honking with every breath after accidentally swallowing a toy party hooter in Argentina.

Doctor Santiago Gomez Zuviría posted the video to raise awareness about toy safety and the risks children are exposed to.

The video was recorded in a hospital emergency room in the northwestern Argentine province of Tucuman and shows an unnamed boy about eight-years-old.

"The whistle was stuck between the larynx and the pharynx", Zuviria told HuffPost by email.

Doctor Gomez Zuviria removed the horn and released the video clip, purportedly to show children the dangers of swallowing these things, but probably also because it's really really amusing. "It was a tragi-comic situation to be honest".

The boy has since recovered, but Zuviria posted the video on Facebook last week to warn people about the dangers of swallowing things.

The video has more than nine million views since it was uploaded.
