A woman with a unique eating condition was forced to undergo emergency surgery after attempting to devour a 3-foot-long iPhone charger wire.
The unidentified Polish woman has Pica, a disease in which individuals attempt to eat inedible objects. The cable became caught in her oesophagus, prompting emergency surgery.
The woman reportedly received emergency treatment to remove the cable after calling for help when she began suffocating and calling 911.
A club called ‘Ready to Rescue’ that teaches First Aid in the Polish city of Wroclaw posted an x-ray photograph on Facebook and wrote: ‘The case involves a woman who ingested an iPhone charging wire measuring one meter in length.
After feeling shortness of breath owing to the placement of the top portion of the tube in her esophagus, the woman summoned the Rescue Team.
After the operation, the woman was discharged from the emergency room.

On Saturday, the snapshot originally appeared on the social media page of a group called Savage Paramedics, which promotes itself as a “community for health professionals to get together for humor, fun, and education.”
It was accompanied by a close-up photograph of the phone charger lodged in the woman’s throat.
The group later posted: “The umbilical cord was successfully amputated in the hospital, and she has made a full recovery.”
However, she could not explain why she swallowed the charging cord first.
The post has since received over 12,000 likes and several comments.
Someone quipped, “She desired to feel more connected.”
Someone another commented, “Perhaps she needs a recharge.”

Another person said, “Giving iPhone users a terrible name.” This is typical android behavior.
Others, however, emphasized the severity of the women’s eating disorder, with standingmaggie writing: “PICA behavior.” I I worked at a mental institution where we had many of these. Hooks for bras, nails, hinges, ends of brass hoses, staples, paper clips, nail clippers, cabinet knobs, and cutlery. You name it.’
Due to its opportunistic feeding patterns, the term Pica disorder is derived from the old Latin word for magpie.
It is frequently related with the intake of inert substances like soap, paint, wood, or stones.
