Apple AirPod Still Works After Being Swallowed Into Stomach

At a local emergency clinic, an X-ray was performed that showed the small plastic device aka the Apple AirPod lying in his lower esophagus.

Brad Gauthier, a Worcester resident, is warning people against wearing earphones while sleeping after what he has been through.

One day, the man woke up and shovel snow for around an hour. After that, he went inside to drink water. However, when he tried to take a sip, the water wouldn’t go down. As a result, he had to lean over and spit it out.

He also noticed that one of his two wireless earbuds had gone missing. According to Gauthier, he often uses them while falling asleep.

His son suggested that maybe he had swallowed one of the earbuds. And after going to a local emergency clinic, it was exactly what happened. An X-ray was performed, showing the small plastic device lying in his lower esophagus.

In an interview with NBC Boston 10, Gauthier said he wanted to share his experience and warn others not to wear their earphones when sleeping.

In a similar incident, a Taiwanese man discovered that his AirPods still worked normally after being swallowed into his stomach.

Apparently, Ben Hsu fell asleep with his Apple’s wireless earbuds on. When he woke up, he couldn’t find one of them.

Arriving at the Kaohsiung Municipal Hospital, he was confirmed by the medics that his AirPod was in his stomach. It was about to pass through his digestive system. The next day, he found it after passing it naturally. And surprisingly, the earbud was still functional after it had been cleaned and let dry.
