A Lego piece that had been stuck inside a boy’s nose for two years has finally fallen out.
Seven-year-old Sameer Anwar was taken to the doctor in 2018 after a tiny piece of Lego got stuck up his nose.
Although the GP could not see it, Sameer was told the piece would move through his digestive tract, reports The Guardian.
His parents had become worried about the piece, however Sameer, from Dunedin in New Zealand felt no pain.
Sameer’s dad, Mudassir Anwar said: “Since then he’s never complained or anything,”
He added his son was “quite playful and a mischievous character,” when speaking to The Guardian.
On Sunday night, Mr Anwar said the “unbelievable” happened when the piece finally came out.
The seven-year-old had leaned down to sniff a plate of cupcakes before the piece – which is thought to be a Lego arm – fell out.
First his nose began to hurt and he though a piece of the cupcake had gotten stuck,
However, when his mum asked him to blow his nose on a tissue, the Lego arm covered in fungus came out.
“We never expected such thing,” Anwar told the Guardian. “The Lego piece looks a bit gross but that’s how it is. Unbelievable”.
Sameer said to his parents: “Mum, I found the Lego! You were telling me it wasn’t there, but it was there!”
The young boy had previously got an imitation pearl stuck up his nose when he was just three-years-old, but his dad managed to get that out.
In another bizarre case, in 2015 an unnamed three-year-old toddler was rushed to hospital by his parents after he inserted scissors into his right nostril and his parents found they were wedged too tight when they went to remove them.
Doctors at the Yuyao Third People’s Hospital in Ningbo, a city in East China’s Zhejiang Province, gave the boy a CT scan and saw that the scissors had penetrated into the brain’s soft tissue.
However, the boy’s condition was considered non-life threatening, and no lasting damage is expected after doctors successfully removed the scissors.
