Choking on Blowgun Darts

You may worry about your baby chocking on small objects, but now there are big kids to consider! With a little help from the Internet, kids are learning how to make their own blowguns but they're not realizing the real dangers that comes with using them. Three boys accidently swallowed darts from the blowgun and although they were lucky enough to have them removed in the emergency room, not all may be so fortunate. To use the blowgun, they have to take a deep breath inward to let a forceful exhale out to propel the dart. One false move and that dart is a goner! If their lips touch the mouth piece at all while inhaling, they're bound to end up with something blocking their airway -- or worse! A sharp object can obstruct the airway or run the risk of puncturing the airway or intestines. Bottom line is these DIY toys are not suitable for kids.
