Cell Phone Lodges In Woman’s Throat

Police in Blue Springs, Mo., said a woman swallowed a cell phone Friday, after an argument over the device with her boyfriend.

A Missouri woman rang in the holidays Friday by swallowing a cell phone.

Police in Blue Springs said they received a call Friday from a man who said his girlfriend was having trouble breathing after she swallowed a cell phone. The two had been arguing about the phone, which ended up being lodged in her throat.

Police said the woman, who wasn’t identified, was taken by ambulance to St. Mary’s Medical Center.

Later, police indicated the woman may not have swallowed the phone but may have been the victim of an assault in which the phone ended up lodged in her throat. The Associated Press reported that the police declined to reveal the details of the incident.
