Pothole Saves Girl's Life

Laci Davis, an 8-year-old in Cincinnati, Ohio, accidentally ingested her necklace and heart-shaped locket, which lodged in her throat.
The third-grader was in excruciating pain.

"It felt like something was stabbing me right in the middle of my chest," she said.

Doctors at St. Elizabeth sent her to Cincinnati Children's Hospital. It was the car ride that changed everything.

"We hit a pot hole and she looked at me and said, 'oh mom, I feel better.' I said what do you mean you feel better and she said 'I don't feel it anymore,'" Amanda Cullum, Laci's mother, said.

The pothole dislodged the locket, which then dropped down into Laci's stomach. The pain was gone, and Laci could breathe normally.

"It was my hero and I when I got home I was like thank you bump," she said.

Doctors told Laci the locket will come back out "the old-fashioned way." Laci says she'll get a new locket instead retrieving this one. http://www.kptv.com/story/16018828/pot-hole-saves-girls-life -via Fark
