Soft drink lodged in man

A 38-year-old Lincoln man showed up at BryanLGH Medical Center West on Monday, claiming he had been assaulted last week, police said Tuesday.

The man told hospital staff he was in the area of 28th and P streets Thursday when someone punched him in the head from behind and kicked him when he fell.

He said he temporarily lost consciousness and came to, only to find his pants down to his ankles.

An X-ray at the hospital Monday revealed a 20-ounce soft drink bottle lodged in the man’s lower intestine. He was to have it removed Tuesday.

Oh man, Kevin and Bean did some call in thing a few years ago with actual ER doctors telling the "How'd that happen" stories anonymously.
It was seriously hilarious.

Yeah well if somebody swallowed my soft drink that I paid for, I'd lash out at him too.

my dad worked as an emt for a few years. aside from heart attack emergencies, second place emergencies were "how'd that happen?" incidents involving hamsters, bottles, and light bulbs.

as i was 8 when he held that job, i didn't hear these stories until i was 18. yup.
