Close Call: I Amost Choked on a Plum
Oh from Korea
Everything went black, and I thought that
I was going to die. Fortunately, my father
finally noticed what was happening.
I was about 16 years old, I went to Pusan with my
family to enjoy a summer vocation. At night our
family watched TV in the living room, and we were
eating some plums. There was an interesting movie
on TV, and we were enjoying watching the movie and
eating the tasty plums.
If someone eats a plum, he spits out the plum seed.
But I swallowed it, and it got stuck in my throat.
It was a little bit big, so I couldn't breathe, and
I couldn't say anything.
my family was so involved in the movie that they
didn't notice anything. Everything went black, and
I thought that I was going to die. Fortunately, my
father finally noticed what was happening. They
thought that I was having a problem, but they
didn't know why I couldn't speak and had a red
face. I felt hopeless. It was a very serious
situation. Then my younger brother saw the remains
of the plum and realized why .
couldn't say anything. My brother pounded my back
many times. At first my parents were surprised ,
but then they began to hit me on the back,too.
I was able to rise from the dead; but for some
time, I wasn't able to fall sleep easily because my
back hurt so much. So, if you eat a plum, be sure
not to swallow the seed.
