Doctors in Wisconsin, USA, were able to safely remove a drill bit from inside a man’s lung after he swallowed the tool while undergoing an operation.
Tom Kozsi, 60, was getting a filling from a dentist when he inhaled the tiny drill bit.
Doctors at Aurora Medical Center-Kenosha in Wisconsin said the situation could have led to surgery. However, they decided to try a device that is typically used for early detection of cancer to attempt to pull the drill bit out without surgery.
Dr. Abdul Alraiyes, the pulmonary specialist who conducted the procedure, posted the video below on Youtube showing the bit being removed.
