Cell Phone Tip of the Day
Here's a news story we dug up from The Kansas City Star back on Christmas Adam:
A Blue Springs woman was taken to a hospital emergency room early today after a cell phone became lodged in her throat.Do we really need to say more? Some times ideas for retailation aren't as good as you think they are in the heat of the moment. If she died, she would have definitely made The Darwin Awards
The woman was in an argument with a boyfriend when the incident occurred, said Sgt. Steve Decker of the Blue Springs Police Department.
Decker said police were told that the woman tried to swallow the telephone because she didn't want the boyfriend to have it. However the case is under investigation.
Police responded to a call about a non-breathing person about 4:50 a.m. in the 3000 block of Southwest U.S. 40, Decker said. Police arrived and found that the 24-year-old woman was having trouble breathing. Her identity was not released.
The woman was taken to the emergency room at St. Mary's Hospital in Blue Springs. She still had the telephone in her throat upon arrival at the hospital, Decker said.
