A quarrel between a loving couple created a bizarre scene in Blue Springs, a Kansas City suburb on Friday when a woman was found to have swallowed her mobile phone.
The local Sheriff responded to a call from a man who said his girlfriend was having trouble breathing after swallowing a mobile phone. After preliminary investigation, the police suspected that the 24-year-old woman may have been a victim of assault rather than swallowing it voluntarily. “It appears she didn’t voluntarily swallow this phone,” said an officer who responded to this call and found a mobile phone lodged in the woman’s throat. Going by the initial accounts of both the man and her girlfriend, police thought that the woman might have swallowed the phone to keep it away from her boyfriend, who wanted it. The investigating authorities, however, did not immediately confirm whether the boyfriend was being considered a suspect.
