Pregnant Woman Swallows Toothbrush

Pregnant Woman Swallows
A four-month pregnant woman swallowed a toothbrush
while using it to scratch an itch at the back of her throat, an
Israeli hospital spokeswoman said on Thursday.
Because of her condition, doctors at the Kaplan Hospital in
Rehovot, south of Tel Aviv, were unable to X-Ray her to
determine where the 25-centimetre-long toothbrush was
Her pregnancy also deterred them from attempting a manual
extraction via her throat.
In the end, they had to remove the object while the woman
was under general anesthetic.
Doctors kept the toothbrush as a souvenir.
