Child Swallows 37 Magnets

A 3-year-old girl in Portland, Oregon is expected to make a full recovery after suffering damage to her intestines and stomach when she swallowed 37 Buckyball rare-earth magnets.

Fortunately she’s doing okay, so here come the jokes:

Her parents became concerned when she kept walking north.

For such a young child, she certainly has a magnetic personality.

“In all the research I have done, I have never seen any child swallow more than 10 magnets,” said Sandy Nipper, R.N., from Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel’s Safety Store.
Well, that explains why she did it — she wanted to get in the Guinness record book!
