  • Drunken Bet Gets Spoon Stuck In Man's Wind Pipe For Year (REAL)

A man from China, Zhang, landed in the hospital complaining of chest pains after being punched in the chest. After getting an x-ray, doctors discovered there was an eight-inch spoon stuck in his windpipe. It turns out it was all because of a drunken bet gone wrong. A year before, Zhang reportedly drunkenly bet his friends he could swallow a stainless steel spoon and then pull it back out with a string. Even though things took a weird turn when he couldn’t actually get it back out, he never went to the doctor about it until just recently because he was still able to breathe and eat normally. But after being punched in the chest, Zhang started suffering chest pains and having trouble breathing. So, doctors removed the spoon from his infected esophagus in a two-hour procedure. Now, he’s recovering and is due to be discharged within a few days.
