Nadia and her 6-year-old son, Anthony, were grilling burgers at home. Anthony ate a burger his mother had prepared when he suddenly fell sick.

He was rushed to the ER immediately where his mother was told what made him sick. Nadia is now warning other parents so it will not happen to other families.

After he was taken to the local ER, doctors realized that Anthony had swallowed a sharp wire from the family’s metal grill brush. “It felt like a needle”, Anthony said to CBC.

The metal grill brush is widely used in homes to get rid of grease and food from BBQ grills.

“We knew something was wrong and he was in extreme pain because he was crying.From the time we had dinner to the time we had surgery, it was about 12 hours later, because our journey started at the local hospital, and then we were transported to SickKids,” Anthony’s mother, Nadia said.

First attempt to remove the grill wire out of Neo’s throat were didn’t work out as doctors did not have the right means.

However, when they got to the Children’s Hospital the experts removed it.
He was still in danger as Anthony had to be cured of bacterial infection of the wire bristle.

“Reportedly, the doctors had come across this kind of issue before. About a year ago, I had a patient who almost died from it. He had (eaten) a bristle from a grill brush and he was sick for two weeks,” CBC reported.

According to Mr. Dixon, a staff member from Barbecue World, it is important to buy a new brush the second it starts to wear out.

It is safer to buy grill brushes whose wires are fixed to a metal piece instead of a plastic or wooden plate as they are safer.

Alternatives

  1. Have the build-up burn off and in this way, you will clean the surface of the grill.
  2. Use an uncooked potato to clean the cooking surface.
  3. Taking aluminum foil to the surface to clean grime.

Nadia said that the reason why they made the story public was to warn other families about the dangers of BBQ brushes. She doesn’t want other families to go through the same thing.

“I hope to have these brushes removed from the shelves, have them banned,” Nadia stated in her post.

Nadia says that her son has a fear of eating anything made on the grill so they have been avoiding having BBQ. Please share this post, to help raise awareness.

7-year-old left with blisters and burns after getting henna tattoo on vacation

Published

No matter how hard parents try, sometimes it’s hard to keep their children out of harm’s way. Even though there’s nothing they can do to prevent their suffering, they still feel it more so than their own. Now imagine how much it hurts when the parent has unintentionally caused the pain, either by mistake or lack of knowledge.

One 7-year-old girl from United Kingdom may be scarred for the rest of her life after her father allowed her to get a black henna tattoo while on holiday in Egypt.

It all started when the mother of the family, 43-year-old Sylvia Gulliver had a gall bladder infection and was rushed to the hospital. Sylvia spent two days in the hospital and her young kids were on their best behavior.

Martins, their father, decided to reward his kids for behaving well while their mother was in hospital. He told the kids they could have a treat of their choice. Madison decided to get a black henna tattoo like the ones she had seen on other tourists.

With permission from her dad she had her hands tattoted at the hotel where the family was staying. Madison’s brother also got a henna tattoo but washed it off after experiencing irritation.

7-year-old Madison kept her tattoo only to feel it itching upon the family’s return home.

Situation worsens

It wasn’t long before the itching worsened causing a series of blisters. The irritation was caused by paraphenylenediamine (PPD), a chemical within the tattoo.

Things got pretty bad that she had to be taken to a specialist burns unit in hospital. She has since been left with scars that could remain for life.

“She is potentially scarred for life after getting a black henna tattoo,” said Martins, as per the Daily Mail.

“The tattoo was done in the hotel’s salon and they claim it’s not the henna and that it’s my daughter’s skin. She has blisters from her finger to her elbow and is in so much pain. We were entirely unaware of the dangers and I think they should warn of this in the brochures.

“I think it’s partly my fault because I didn’t know about it, but also the fault of the salon because they are using dangerous chemicals on children. We would have thought that the travel agents would have had concerns about this.

“We want to get the message out to other people.”

Poor little Madison was referred a scar management unit and will have to wear a pressure bandage for at least six months to limit the damage.

Walmart Shopper Filmed Gargling Mouthwash, Spitting It Into Bottle And Putting It Back On Shelf

Just last week, the internet went wild with fury when a video surfaced showing a woman licking tubs of ice cream and putting them back on the shelves for other shoppers to buy.  Following the order, police issued a statement revealing they had identified the culprit in question. According to CBS News, if the woman is convicted she would be facing a second-degree felony tampering with a consumer product, and could face between two and 22 years in prison.

Now, yet another new video has hit the web. This time, it shows a Walmart shopper gargling mouthwash before spitting it back into the bottle and putting it back on the shelf.

Kid was taken to ER – Parents warn others after they find out what he had eaten.

Watching movies while eating popcorn can be a fun and interesting way of treating yourself during the weekend. But for this lovely family from Colorado, it turned out to be a nightmare of their life.

Nicole and Jake Goddard were enjoying their weekend night watching Mrs. Doubtfire when their youngest child, Nash, started chocking. His father did a Heimlich maneuver and luckily he was able to take a breath.

His family believed he was chocking because of the popcorn stuck on his throat which he eventually swallowed.

“We knew he was breathing, we did not see anything come out so we assumed he’d just swallowed it,” Nicole said to Fox News.

A few hours later Nash developed problems with his breathing. His parents believed it was because their two daughters had lately been sick and he may have caught it from them.

But things got worse and they didn’t realize it until they called the pediatrician who advised to take him to the ER.

After the incident, Nicole posted on her Facebook to warn other parents.

“He (Nash) had a fever, so I gave him Motrin and put him to bed. A very long night with him and then his breathing looked a little labored to me and he just didn’t feel good. I called my pediatrician immediately and said Nash needs to be seen ASAP. At 6 pm they put Nash under and performed the procedure (a Bronchoscopy).

I paced and cried the entire time my little man was in surgery…He had aspirated popcorn into his lungs when he choked. The body recognized it as a foreign object and put puss pockets around it. All the inflammation caused him to develop pneumonia in his left lung.”

According to Nicole, 6 pieces of popcorn were taken out of Nasha’s lungs and due to high inflammation they had to repeat the process two days later to check if they had removed it all.

She was also told that popcorn should not be given to children under five.

“I got a lecture of course on how popcorn isn’t supposed to be given to anyone under 5. I hate to use the excuse he’s our third child so I overlook and don’t pay as close attention to the do’s and don’ts as we did with our first,” she stated.
