KIDAPAWAN CITY – A nine-month-old baby boy accidentally swallowed a pushpin here Tuesday and the mother is seeking help from the public to fund his operation.
The mother, Angel Mae Dinaguit, said she was to buy milk tea from a roadside stall when she noticed her son chewing a pushpin.
“I tried to pull it but my son has already swallowed the pin,” she said in the vernacular.
Dinaguit said she rushed her child to the hospital and an X-ray showed the drawing pin in his stomach.
“We knock on your heart, please extend help if you can,” the mother said.
Friends posted the mother’s appeal and a photo of the boy’s X-ray.
She said doctors estimated the operation to cost her P100,000.
