HOUSTON, Texas -- A mother is claiming that a fidget spinner nearly killed her daughter.
The fidget spinner is a popular toy that has been banned in some classrooms because of its distraction, but a family in Texas recently discovered its true dangers.
While driving home, a mother noticed her daughter choking in the back seat. Her 10-year-old daughter had swallowed one of the toy's weighted bearings.
After being rushed to the hospital, X-rays showed the quarter-sized part stuck in her esophagus.
Thanks to a successful extraction surgery, the girl is now doing fine.
