BEWARE OF THIS: A 13 years old girl nearly died after she copied a dangerous TitTok trend.

The influence of the social media on the present world is becoming increasingly bad that it almost cost the life of a young girl. 

A 13-year-old girl who was reported to have copied a dangerous TikTok trend which shows users how to create the appearance of a tongue piercing by placing magnetic ball bearings underneath and on top of the tongue ended up having her appendix and part of her bowl removed. 

According to the girl's mother, she took part in the practice and ended up swallowing 15 magnetic beads. 
She refused to inform anyone and after sometimes started complaining of Stomach pains and started vomiting black stuffs. 

The girl’s mother, Faye, from Rainhill in Merseyside from England, narrated :

“The pains got worse so I took her to Whiston Hospital. They thought it might have been her appendix at first.

“Then they ruled that out and thought it might have been gastroenteritis until she started vomiting black stuff. They did a scan and found 10 of the ball bearings. Magnetic balls were lodged in her bowel and appendix”. 

 “They had to take part of her bowel away and re-stitch it. There was one stuck in her appendix so they had to remove that.” she narrated. 

By the end of the surgery which took place at Alder Hey Children’s hospital 15 magnetic beads were removed out of the girl’s organs.

The scar left by the surgery is about six inches long which might take very long to recover. 

 Faye also added,

“I don’t know when she swallowed them because she didn’t admit at first to doing it. I think she was a bit scared of admitting what she’d done.

“Apparently she watched a TikTok video where there’s a trend that all the kids are doing at the minute.

“I haven’t actually seen it but she told me about it and a lot of other children her age have seen it.

“They put one of the beads on top of their tongue and one underneath and it makes it look like their tongue is pierced.

“And then she saw one where they put a big bead in the side of your cheek and put little beads on top of your cheek and you move it with your tongue so they move on your face. They’re magnets but because they’re so small they’re easy to swallow”.
