Girl hospitalized after attempting TikTok magic trick

A girl in Roseville, Michigan, was hospitalized after trying to imitate a TikTok magic trick. She was copying a “magical” stunt shared by TikTok user gregsabbak. In his video, he pretends to swallow a die and then makes it reappear after five seconds. Dhakota couldn’t find a die, so she used a quarter instead. She went into the bathroom for a few minutes before emerging. she was struggling to breathe. “She said she couldn’t swallow,” her father told WDIV. “She couldn’t breathe hardly”. He said they took the girl to two different hospitals before a doctor was able to see her. “I didn’t know how bad the situation was until they brought the X-ray back and I saw the quarter right there in her esophagus”. He explained that the quarter was lodged sideways in her throat, and doctors kept her overnight to do an emergency procedure. Thankfully, she’s out of the hospital now and recovering. It might seem like this goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway — do not try this at home
