A coin stuck in Reza's throatA coin stuck in Reza's throat - A Malaysian mother shares her experience on a Facebook page. The mother explained that her son, Reza, accidentally swallowed a coin around 11 pm. She knew this, when she saw her son choking, and looked weak and had difficulty breathing.

She tried to hit her son's back to make him cough and remove the coin, but to no avail. The mother then called her husband, then her husband tried to do the same thing. The child named Reza then began to cry. Then he began to spit out the milk he drank, before, incident. Oddly, the milk came out when ithe coin was still stuck in his throat.

At 11:30 pm, they decided to bring Reza to the clinic. On the way there, Reza began to vomit again, and once again when they reached the clinic. However, doctors said they could not treat Reza because they claimed that their x-ray machine was not functioning. They were given a reference letter to the An-Nur Specialist Hospital in Bangi.

The hospital in Bangi is known to have an x-ray machine. How surprised Reza's parents, the X-ray results then showed that there was a 20 cent coin clearly visible caught between the boy's respiratory tract and esophagus.

At 1:30 am, a doctor came and told them that the hospital did not have the right equipment to issue the coins. Apparently they had ordered the device but it hadn't arrived. Reza was then referred to the Kajang KPJ Specialist Hospital.

After a long journey, they finally arrived at KPJ Kajang Hospital and Reza was taken to the emergency room where medical staff were told that the boy was choking on objects. However, the receptionist did not even see the x-rays and immediately told them that the hospital was full and told them to go to another hospital.

At this point, Reza's parents became very frustrated and angry and began to scold the staff. They asked to see a manager and a woman came to them.

The woman explained that the KPJ Hospital did not have a pediatric surgeon.

Finally, Reza was taken to a critical zone in the KPJ where a doctor examined Reza's heart and oxygen levels. The doctor explained that everything was under control except for a little difficulty breathing. This happened at 5 a.m.

Another x-ray is scheduled for 8 am to check if the coin has moved but the position is still the same. They were then referred to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) because KPJ Kajang Hospital did not have enough equipment for surgery.

Ms. Reza then advised parents to go directly to a large hospital because she was afraid that what happened to them would happen to other people. He then thanked KPJ Kajang Hospital and HKL staff for serving them well.
