Poisonous Centipede Lives in Woman's Throat for a week and lives to tell the tale!

Poisonous Centipede Lives in Woman’s Throat for a week and lives to tell the tale!

Okay, Maybe the Centipede didn’t “tell the tale”…

But the woman sure did.  The 55-year-old woman from India went to the hospital because she had been experiencing a tickling sensation in her lower throat for about a week.

Finger Lickin’ Good

The lady had eaten some chicken and she assumed a bone had become lodged in her throat.  Boy, was she wrong!

Upon examination, the doctors found a centipede in the upper part of oesophagus, the passage between the pharynx and the stomach.  The most bizarre part is that the centipede was still alive!

No word on how the centipede survived living in the woman’s throat.   What would you do if you found a centipede in your throat?  Release it into the wild, or dispose of it by some other means?

    The headline is misleading. I was expecting to hear the centipede’s side of the tale. How traumatic that would have been to be swallowed alive!
