A Boy Was Rushed To The Hospital After Something Strange Was Found In His Throat

The boy sustained various injuries, but the octopus in his throat was definitely the weirdest.

In Wichita, Kansas, a two-year-old boy was quickly rushed to the hospital after his mom figured out that he couldn’t breathe. When doctors examined him, they quickly saw the problem, and it was certainly a weird one.

He had an octopus lodged in his throat. Luckily, the cephalopod was removed, but how did it get there? Police were disturbed by his guardians’ inability to explain the problem, and paired with the mysterious wounds on the child’s face, they knew that they had an abusive situation on their hands.

The boy’s mother returned home to find her boyfriend, Matthew Gallagher, desperately trying to perform CPR on her child. She ripped the little one away from Gallagher and rushed him to the hospital.

Injuries sustained suggested that Gallagher hurt the boy before jamming the octopus down his throat. He was taken to a local precinct after that, but has since been released.


Thankfully, the boy’s brain wasn’t deprived of oxygen long enough to cause permanent damage. Whether the allegations against Gallagher are warranted or not, the whole situation seems shady.
