PORTLAND -- A 3-year-old was recovering Monday at Legacy Emanuel Hospital after doctors removed 37 'Buckyball' magnets from her intestines.
Payton Bushnell complained to her parents of symptoms that resembled the flu, Legacy spokeswoman Maegan Vidal told KGW. Then, they took her in to get checked.
Doctors took an X-ray and found the balls, clustered in her stomach. She was expected to fully recover and was listed in good condition Monday morning.
How does this happen? Is it neglect,inattention,or just plain stupidity on the parents part? This would not happen with proper supervision. Parents be aware please! This could have ended much worse than it did!
