 A 15-year-old boy in Ohio required a visit to the emergency room after he inhaled a dart from a homemade blowgun, according to a new report of his case.

The dart lodged in the boy's airway after he inhaled deeply while holding the blowgun in his mouth. Blowguns are designed to allow darts to be propelled outward by the force of an exhaled breath. The gun mostly consists of a narrow tube.

When he arrived at the emergency room, the boy had already been coughing for three hours. Although the boy said he had just been playing with his siblings

Gunna happen, nothing much you can do but to be honest about what happened for the doctors and nurses to assist you. At 15 he should have known not to breath in with a loose object on his lips...  :s

Tough call, the first thing that happens when you teach your teen to use a firearm is stressing safety, safety, safety.

Not so much for the blowgun, that and he was obviously trying to keep it a secret.

Poor technique - you're supposed to inhale before bringing it to your mouth. I've had mine for >45 years and never had this happen. Neither have our children, who were taught how to make & use a blowgun as youngsters.
