If A Fish Bone Enters Your Throat Don’t Panic, Just Do Any Of These 3

One of the most prominent experiences I believe we have all had a taste of is having to deal with getting rid of a fish bone we unintentionally ingested while eating.

It is a common experience that can also be deadly if not given an attention in the sense that if unfortunately the bone got stuck in the oesophagus, it can cause great problems for the person.

Swallowing fish bone by mistake is not something exclusive to only children.

It can happen to anyone, so I think the information in this article is for the benefit of every age.

Just sit tight, sip your tea and enjoy the article.

Below are some of the Three (3) Things You Can do to Get Rid of a Fish Bone That Entered Your Throat:

1. Banana: Banana is a very soft fruit that can aid your mission to get rid of the bone in your throat. They are smooth and eating banana immediately can help smoothly push down the bone from your throat to your stomach.

Just don’t swallow heavy things, banana would do to push it down safely and harmlessly.

2. Cough: some fish bone that get stuck in our throat can be dislodged through a powerful or rather forceful cough. If you notice that a bone is stuck in your throat, then you should consider coughing forcefully for some seconds to see whether the bone has been dislodged. If it doesn’t get dislodged, then you try other alternatives stated in this article.

3. Drink Olive Oil: when I say drink Olive Oil, I don’t mean drink a full bottle of olive oil.

It is a lubricant and as such, perfectly suitable for dislodging bones from anyone’s throat.

Just take two to three shots of olive oil and drink to lubricate your throat enough to aid the peaceful sliding of the bone into your stomach.

That is all for now lovely Readers! Hope you learnt something new today?

A prison inmate whose life was saved with my inhaler now in Germany – Tsatsu Tsikata

Legal practitioner Tsatsu Tsikata has in giving an account of the severe asthmatic attack he suffered in jail at the Nsawam Prison, revealed how an act of kindness nearly cost him his life.

Tsatsu was an inmate of the Nsawam Prison after being found guilty of causing financial loss to the state by an Accra High Court presided over by Justice Henrietta Abban.

The former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana National Petroleum Commission was jailed on June 18, 2008, for his role in a loan facility the GNPC guaranteed for Valley Farms, a private cocoa-growing company.

Tsatsu said on Pan African TV that a day before he experienced his attack, a prisoner came to him to plead for help for another inmate who was under attack.

Tsatsu says he gave the inmate his inhaler despite being aware of the dangers.

“The day that I ended up being taken out of prison with [an] asthmatic attack. The day before that, one of the prisoners came to me and said that a prisoner has a bad asthma attack and if there was something I could do to help with medication.

“By then, my wife had brought me a new inhaler. A much stronger one than my inhaler. As soon as he said, I gave it to him and by evening I had my own attack which was beyond the Ventolin inhaler.

“By morning, the situation clearly was dangerous. I could have died, it was that dangerous. The director then was feeling so helpless because they took me to Nsawam Hospital, they couldn’t manage the situation. There [was] to be an evacuation to Korle Bu or 37 or wherever.

“It was my wife who had to organize [an] ambulance from Koforidua to come to Nsawam because there was no ambulance anywhere. And first to 37 and they realized that the ICU could probably not handle the situation so they took me to Korle Bu,” he narrated.

Tsatsu Tsikata, however, felt some sense of fulfilment after he learnt of the impact of his act of kindness ten years on.

“The good news is that I was able to have medical attention and thank God I’m still alive. That also meant, the prisoner was also saved and can you believe that ten years from the day that I went to prison, we went with Pastor Jones and a medical team to do a medical outreach?

“A prisoner walks to me and ask do you remember me? I’m the one who came for that inhaler to give to the person who had [an] asthmatic attack. That person is always grateful to you because his life was saved, he came out of prison and now he is in Germany. And he can’t stop recalling that inhaler moment. That is why I say that they might mean it for evil but God meant it for good,” he said.

Notorious armed robber’s jail term increases to 90 years

Prince Adu, also known as Dracula, a notorious armed robber, who was handed a cumulative 63 years jail sentence by a Ho Circuit Court for three robbery offences, had his jail term increased to 90 years when the court sentenced him to an additional 27 years in hard labour for a similar offence.

The robber, who pleaded guilty to the charge, would have his new sentence run concurrently with the earlier convictions.

Narrating the fact to the court, presided over by Felix Datsomor, Chief Inspector Stephen Atidzon said the complainant (name withheld) is a trader and resident of New Housing, a suburb of Ho.

He said the complainant, who was returning to her house from Ho Barracks New Town, stopped a motorcycle, which had the convict and his accomplice, a juvenile, now committed in a borstal home on board on May 29, last year, at about 2200 hours.

The prosecution said the convict after hearing where the destination of the victim was, asked her to get on board and told her that he and his accomplice would be alighting soon.

Chief Inspector Atidzon said on reaching Donorkordzi cemetery, the complainant opted to alight, seeing that the vehicle was heading into the bush.

Prosecution said the convict also alighted immediately with the complainant and snatched her purse containing an amount of Gh¢100.00 and her itel mobile phone valued at Gh¢500.00.

He said the juvenile then removed a two-edged sharp machete from his bag and gave it to the convict and they started assaulting the complainant.

Prosecution said the rider tried to intervene and pleaded on behalf of the victim but the convict ordered him to move away from the scene immediately, which he did, leaving the victim behind.

Chief Inspector Atidzon said the victim, in an attempt to protect herself against the assault, held the edge of the machete, and the convict pulled it, resulting in a deep cut in her palm.

Prosecution said the convict then ordered the victim to remove her dress and he forcibly had sex with her after which he asked the victim to give him an additional money.

He said the convict, after having sexual intercourse with the complainant, ordered her to sit on one of the tombs whilst they leave, threatening to kill her if she disobeyed the order.

Prosecution said after the convict and his accomplice left, the victim quickly ran to Godokpui Police checkpoint and reported the incident to the Police on duty and they also informed the patrol team.

The juvenile was arrested on a motorcycle but the convict managed to escape, the Prosecution said.

Prosecution said on February 18, this year, the convict was arrested in a different case and was re-arrested on February 27, and pleaded guilty to the offence in his investigation statement, hence the stiffer punishment.
