Mother Chokes To Death After Stuffing Cakes In Mouth For Party Trick
A young mother of one has tragically choked to death while attempting a party trick where she would stuff Jaffa cakes in her mouth.
Bethan Gaskin, 24, blacked out and lost consciousness after the cakes got stuck in her throat. She was rushed to hospital after collapsing in her Lincolnshire, England home!
Unfortunately, the young woman passed away just five days later at Peterborough City Hospital.
Her devastated mother, Michele, 52, speaks out to warn other people of the dangers of taking part in food challenges,
“I remember raising my eyebrows when Bethan started the game, thinking, ‘How old are you?’ and telling her to spit them out.”
“She was like a little hamster with her cheeks bulging.
“She danced off to the toilet to get rid of them and it was only a while later we realized she had been gone a long time.”
They went to check on her in the bathroom, but, discovered she was passed out on the floor.
“In my heart, I knew we had lost her before they put her into the ambulance. Too much time was passing,” her mother added.
Bethan remained in the hospital for five days before doctors discovered she had too much brain damage.
Bethan leaves behind her 3-year-old daughter, Lili.
