(Scroll down for video) A little boy was rushed to a hospital after his parents suspected that he swallowed a toy and it was stuck in his throat, doctors in Saudi Arabia said.
Dr. Ghofran Ageely, who works at the King Abdulaziz University Hospital in Jeddah, said that the parents of the 16-month-old boy brought him to the hospital because he was having difficulties breathing.
Ageely took x-rays of the boy’s throat and said that the said the object was a SpongeBob toy, which had a smile and its tongue exposed.
The doctor was even able to see the toy’s freckles, shoes and fingers. The parents told the doctor that the toy belonged to the boy’s older sister.
Doctors were able to remove the SpongeBob toy, and the boy was sent home. The doctor uploaded the x-ray image on a social media website, and it has since gone viral.
