Fearing that your child is sick in any way is a parent’s worst nightmare. Whether it’s something as simple as the common cold or something much more serious, every parent will go to the extreme to protect their kids.
But knowing that what has caused your child to be sick is actually something that could be in your house right now is even more terrifying.
Well, that’s exactly what happened to a mother and her young son from Oklahoma.
Young Brady went to his mother complaining of stomach pains. And, of course, his mother instantly began to worry.
At first the mother thought that her son had a stomach flu so she immediately took him to the hospital to see a doctor.
As it turns out, what was causing her sons discomfort was something much more serious.
After taking some x-rays, the doctor discovered that Brady had swallowed high powered magnets.
In fact, doctors are reporting a rise in the number of cases of children ingesting magnets. These magnets have the potential to seriously injure and possibly kill a child if the damage done by the magnets is extensive enough.
Luckily for Brady and his mother, the magnets didn’t cause much damage and the young boy was able to make a quick recovery.
Nevertheless, it’s important to spread this story so that other parents can potentially identify hazardous items, like magnets, and remove them from the household to avoid incidents such as this.
