A 14-month-old toddler in Wenatchee swallowed a lithium battery last month that burned a hole in his esophagus before the problem was discovered recently.
When the toddler was first taken to the hospital, the doctors thought it was a coin, but when it was surgically removed on May 19 the doctor noticed it had started to corrode.
The young boy was later taken to Children’s Hospital in Seattle, where doctors discovered a hole in the toddlers esophagus. He is currently being treated and is expected to make a full recovery.
