As emergency calls go, this patient really wasn’t too smart if he thought you could swallow ANY kind of Blackberry.
Doctors were left giggling as they removed a mobile phone which had become lodged inside a man’s mouth.
Video footage shows the unidentified patient in Klerksdorp, South Africa, lying on a gurney with medics gathered around him to view the unusual procedure – some filming it on their own mobile phones.
Some of the hospital workers can be heard laughing as forceps are used to pull the Blackberry phone from the patient’s mouth.
The footage, recorded by Edwin Shingo who was present at the time of the extraordinary procedure, dates from 2012 but has gone viral this weekend after being posted on video sharing site LiveLeak.
