Lego piece falls out of a seven-year-old child’s nose after 2 years

# Headlines Tops World

Children often put small things up their nostrils or in their mouth while playing. Some of the pieces are hazardous while some are retrieved easily without any complications.

One such rare case happened in New Zealand. A missing Lego piece falls out of a boy’s nose two years after he pushed it up to his nose.

In the year 2018, seven-year-old Sameer Anwar of Dunedin, in the south of New Zealand, inserted a tiny piece of Lego up his nose while playing.
Sameer’s father, Mudassir, and his wife became alarmed when their son told them he had lost a piece of Lego up his nose, and couldn’t find it.

The worried parents took their son to a general practitioner, who was also unable to find the Lego piece or remove it. The doctor advised them the
the piece would move through their son’s digestive tract if it had even been there in the first place.

However, Sameer did not complain about pain or anything and soon everyone forgot about it, until last night. Anwar said something “unbelievable” happened last night.

Apparently, on the previous night, a plate of pink cupcakes prompted seven-year-old Anwar to lean down and take a great big sniff of them.

Immediately, his nose began to hurt. Thinking he’d sniffed up some cake crumbs, his mother helped him blow his nose, hoping to thoroughly clear his nostrils.

But instead of pink cake crumbs, out dropped a tiny piece of black Lego, covered in fungus.

“We never expected such thing,” the said the delighted parents. “The Lego piece looks a bit gross but that’s how it is. Unbelievable,” they added.

Sameer was really excited when he found the Lego piece. He said, “Mum, I found the Lego! You were telling me it wasn’t there, but it was there!”

It was not the first time that Sameer had put something up his nose. When he was three he pushed an imitation pearl up his nostril, but in that
instance, his father was able to retrieve it.

This was truly a miracle but miracles don’t happen often. So if you’re a parent, be careful and keep a close watch on your children.
