Child Gulps Down Replica Of State Capitol 11-24-2010

Politics can be tough to swallow for many people, but it was pretty easy for a Vancouver toddler.
On Sunday, 9-month-old Temperence Trullinger swallowed a penny-sized replica of the Washington State Capitol building.
The toddler's mother, Kamani Trullinger, says she had no idea where the tiny model came from.
“We were watching the AMAs, she was playing on the floor and started coughing and choking,” she says.
Trullinger says she called 911 and an ambulance took Temperance to a hospital.
“She had it in her mouth, choked on it and ended up swallowing it and it just got lodged in her esophagus,” the girl's mother says. “We did the X-rays and everyone was betting on what it was, trying to figure it out."
Doctors safely removed the replica, and Trullinger even framed the X-ray, saying she wants her daughter to have a memento from the bizarre emergency room trip.
