An elderly woman was horrified to find a condom lodged in throat, causing her to vomit and choke, according to court documents in Jefferson County, Alabama.

Demetria Hannah filed a lawsuit against IHOP, claiming that her food had a condom and she accidentally ate it while eating a meal with her husband and grandchildren.

The lawsuit named KMG Enterprises Inc., which is the operator of IHOP store number 4418.

According to Hannah, she along with her husband, minor grandson and minor granddaughter went to the IHOP restaurant located at 221 State Farm Parkway, to have dinner at the request of her granddaughter.

After being seated, Hannah and her family ordered their meals.

Hannah ordered French toast and sausage.

While consuming her meal, Hannah felt something become lodged in her throat, which caused her to have difficulty breathing.

As a result, she ran to the women’s bathroom along with her minor grandson.

While in the women’s bathroom, Hannah attempted to dislodge the material in her throat by vomiting.

Hannah was unable to dislodge the material lodged in her throat by vomiting, and for that reason, proceeded to place her fingers in the back of her throat in an attempt to pull out the material.

Hannah was able to pull out the material that had become lodged in her throat, and she placed it onto the counter in the bathroom.

Upon inspection of this material, Hannah and her minor grandson observed a condom among the chewed up food that she had consumed.

Hannah grandson then went to get her husband, who also observed the condom and contacted the Homewood Police Department.

Hannah was treated by emergency medical personnel and transported to the hospital, where she received additional treatment.

The lawsuit claims that IHOP was negligent.

Alan Garrett, who is the Vice President of KMG Enterprises Inc., denied the allegations, saying that the story is a complete fabrication.
