Videos like this one never get old. Working at AFV, you come across lots of videos featuring kids in any number of ridiculous scenarios. One of my favorite type of videos are the kids who’ve swallowed something they shouldn’t have. We’ve all been there before. When I was a kid, I swallowed a screw from my dad’s workshop in the basement. We spent the entire night in the ER to make sure I didn’t have to get it removed surgically. Believe it or not, I still have the x-ray! So this little girl isn’t alone. But my suggestion from now on, keep the snacking to non-metal items. Check out how this metal detector reveals little girl swallowed coin!
That’s irrefutable proof she swallowed the coins.
I promise this video isn’t a prank and we aren’t trying to pull a fast one on you. AFV actually has a couple videos like this one featuring parents who used metal detectors to reveal the coin or coins their child just swallowed. What is it about pocket change that kids love so much? It doesn’t smell good, it certainly doesn’t taste very good. Why are they always swallowing it? Pretty much every kid has swallowed enough change to pay for two hours worth of parking downtown. I don’t get it! What are they smothering it with ranch? The last thing I would think a kid would want to swallow is a coin. They’re so filling and leave almost no room for dessert.
Glad I’m not in charge of retrieving it!
I guess that’s money they have no choice but to flush down the drain. The little girl’s face in this video really says it all. She’s not too happy with the situation. Her parents have a good sense of humor about everything, having retrieved the metal detector from the attic. But her face isn’t having it. Maybe she has a stomach ache from the metal in her stomach? Are there any side effects of swallowing change? Metallic breath? Heart burn? Nothing a little Tums can’t solve.
Okay, I guess her allowance has to be in paper money from now on.
This could be a brilliant move to get her parents to increase her allowance. Let’s suppose her allowance was fifty cents a week until now. Well, you can’t keep giving her change, she’ll just swallow it! Gotta double the allowance. And let’s hope she doesn’t nibble at those dollar bills either.
We’re teasing this little girl. Kids swallow weird stuff all the time. One of my favorite things to ask parents is what’s the craziest thing their kid has ever swallowed. Kids are such professionals at making their parents freak out. Whenever we think life has calmed down, they run up to us saying they just swallowed a handful of change. Okay, honey, can you pull up the nearest ER on your phone?
Do you have a video of your child that’s hilarious? Or a weird video that you have to see to believe? If so, we’d love to see em! Send them HERE!
