Boy hospitalised after fidget spinner mishap

The point of a fidget spinner, it would seem, is to provide a mindless physical distraction.

"You don't think that would ever happen", he said. While she was playing with it a couple of weeks ago, one of the metal bearings inside came loose.

A young Sydney boy was rushed to hospital after swallowing part of a fidget spinner - the latest toy craze sweeping Australian playgrounds.

It was at this party that Varun Dhawan took the sword of Baahubali and reenacted the famous Kattappa killing Baahubali scene. Apart from the Baahubali actors, several other actors, including Varun Dhawan turned up at the filmmaker's party.


"The side of the spinner was cracked and when he spun it, the disc flew in his mouth and before he realised, he swallowed it", she wrote.

Last month, a 10-year-old girl required surgery to remove one of the metal pieces of the fidget toy that she accidentally swallowed.

She immediately started choking. Fortunately, her father managed to give her back blow until she was able to breathe.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is investigating incidents involving fidget spinners. "I think parents need to educate their children about the danger of these", says Dr. Nina Shapiro with UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital. Doctors also warn parents about the dangers of fidget spinners, advising them not to give the toy to very young kids and to tell older children about the risk of these items. "They should not be put in their mouths, they should not be taken apart".

"I don't want a kid to choke".
