For nearly two years, a 50-year-old man in North Carolina has suffered mysterious coughing fits, fatigue, and pneumonia. Now he’s back to normal after doctors removed a 1-inch piece of plastic from his lungs, which he apparently inhaled while enjoying a soft drink.
“I like to take big gulps of drink,” the former home remodeler said. “I don’t know of any other ways of it getting in there.”
